Prince’s Trust teams celebrate conclusion of course

The latest Prince’s Trust teams at Ayrshire College have completed their 18-week course.

Team 201 from the Kilmarnock Campus and Team 202 from the Kilwinning Campus came together at Kilmaurs Masonic Hall and Social Club for a special graduation event to recognise their achievement.

The Prince’s Trust programme is for 16 to 25 year olds who are looking to develop their personal skills. The course involves a community project, work experience and team working activities which help to build the students’ confidence, motivation and communication skills.

After completing the course, many of this year’s students are now progressing into other full-time Ayrshire College courses, or exploring employment opportunities.

At the graduation ceremony, the students all spoke candidly about their time with Prince’s Trust, thanking team leaders Bobby McCorriston and Jacqueline McFadzean, and assistant team leader Chloe Armstrong, for their support over their Prince’s Trust journey.

The groups sang Gerry Cinnamon’s single ‘Canter’ to get the event underway before they were presented with certificates of completion. They also looked back on their time at Prince’s Trust, with a series of videos shot by the students during their course – some at the Sky Academy studios in Livingston.

Jacqueline McFadzean, Prince’s Trust Team Leader at Ayrshire College at the Kilwinning Campus, said: “I am very proud of the personal journey the students have made in a short space of time. I wish them all the very best in the future.”

Paula McPhail, one of the students on the course, said: “I joined Prince’s Trust to build my confidence and get experience. The best bit about this course is meeting new people and learning new skills. After this course, I’m now going to get my Prince’s Trust team leader training and I’m really excited to see how my journey goes.”

The latest Prince’s Trust team at Ayrshire College started on Monday 22 January 2024.
