Lifeskills/Money Management

You will take part in a 4-session workshop, this course is certificated and covers all aspects of Money Management including borrowing, saving and much more. During this week you will also begin looking at personal development.

Community Project

The community project should always benefit the local community. Each team choose their own project and before doing this they:

• Gather Team Ideas
• Decide on a Project
• Source Materials as needed
• Budget & Raise funds
• Carry out their project

In the past community projects have ranged from upgrading gardens for local nursing homes and nurseries to painting various premises, however this may be an online activity such as an information video or a socially distanced fundraiser due to the current Covid-19 restrictions. This allows you to develop skills where working with others is important.

Personal Project

Each student will plan, research, and create a personal project relevant to their own interests. This allows you to develop skills where working and using your own initiative is important.

Course Content, Week 9 - 12

Next Steps

This week will be a chance for the Team to take part in online workshops to help create or update a CV, how to complete application forms and create a cover letter for a job and take part in mock job interviews. They will discuss plans i.e.

• Employment
• Further Education (College/University)
• Continue volunteering.

Online employer/work tours from outside organisations are arranged for this week.

Team Challenge

The Team Challenge is when the Team take on a final challenge that really stretches them. This can involve working with other teams to produce a video to be shown during the final presentation.

Participants have 1-week to complete the team challenge and planning before the event is essential. The Team must:

• Gather Ideas for activity and client group
• Decide on a theme
• Source Materials
• Budget and Fund Raise for the event
• Carry out the Challenge

Final Week Review and Presentation

The young people review the whole 12-weeks and deliver a small presentation to friends, family, local organisations, work placement providers and possible new recruits, to share with them their experiences and achievements gained from joining the Prince’s Trust. Before they do this, they must:

• Discuss Ideas

• Create and distribute invitations
• Arrange any catering required
• Complete a Programme and Presentation Booklet

At the presentation for completing the course successfully, the young people will be given their certificate of completion and their Team Leader Award electronically.

Go Anywhere

Individual Learning Records (ILR’s)

Throughout the course, young people work through a logbook every week.

These skills can be gained at SCQF Level 3 or 4. Young people work on and improve these skills throughout the programme and gather naturally occurring evidence to back up their logbook work.

Evidence is gathered in the form of video footage, photographs, flipcharts, phone logs, letters etc. The young people will generate two types of evidence - team and individual evidence.

Throughout the programme the change in a young person can be fantastic, shy individuals on day 1 usually leave on the last day of week 12, confident, motivated and ready to go back to work or college and get their life on track! Each individual carries a success story of their own which proves they have gained experience and confidence from the course. This enables them to achieve their goals.
