I had recently left sixth form, and I was struggling to find a job or an apprenticeship. My NEET support worker, Jackie, suggested CXK’s Prince’s Trust Team Programme to me.
I feel I have really benefitted from the programme, before I joined the programme, I wasn’t very confident, I would have never dreamed of speaking to a large group of people. My interpersonal skills have also improved, I’ve learnt to work and communicate as a group, and understand other people’s ideas and point of view.
Now that I have completed the programme, I plan to volunteer for 6 months until I turn 18. I really want to do a job which involves helping other people, so I’m aiming to find a part-time job alongside volunteering.
The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is a 12 week course available to anyone living in Kent aged 16-25 and not in education, employment or training. Team gives you the chance to build your confidence, develop your Maths and English skills, gain valuable work experience, and get all of the advice and guidance you need to take the next steps towards finding a job.
