Prince’s Trust Programme

Thanks to a the partnership between the College and the Prince’s Trust, we are able to offer the renowned Prince’s Trust Programme right here at our Abingdon campus!

This is an amazing opportunity for anyone who is out of work, training or education, and wants to gain a valuable qualification or certificate, develop their CV and career aspirations, and open doors to their future dream career.

Spread across 12 weeks, you’ll get work experience, meet new people, learn practical skills and finish with a nationally-recognised qualification. Each Team is run by a Team Leader and is usually made up of between 12-15 people with a variety of skills and backgrounds, with a mix of both employed and unemployed people, giving you the chance to meet new people and make new friends.

As a Team, you’ll choose what you do as you learn how to work closely with others, uncover hidden talents, build your self-esteem and improve your confidence. working towards a valuable qualification and certificates, developing a CV and career aspirations, and opening doors to future opportunities.

For those who want to apply but are worried about costs or losing benefits/JSA, don’t worry – the course is completely free and you can still claim benefits or JSA throughout the duration of the 12 weeks.
