Aberdeen Foyer are appealing for unemployed young people to take part in a 12 week Prince’s Trust Team Programme to learn new skills and improve their confidence and motivation.

The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is delivered in North Aberdeenshire by Aberdeen Foyer in partnership with North East Scotland College.

The programme is a 12-week self development course for 16–25 year-olds, designed to increase confidence, motivation and raise self-esteem.

The course will give unemployed people the opportunity to gain the appropriate skills and confidence to find a job.

Young people will get involved in team building activities, a week-long residential trip, a community project and two weeks of work experience during the course. They will also get advice on how to write CVs as well as gaining nationally recognised qualifications.

Three in four young people on Prince’s Trust schemes move into work, education or training.

The Prince’s Trust will help 55,000 disadvantaged young people this year, giving them the confidence and skills to turn their lives around.

Kevin Warrander, Prince’s Trust Team Leader said: “Too many young people feel they don’t have any skills and talents, and feel they’ll never amount to anything.

“The Team programme really does help them to turn their lives around, helping them into work, education or training.”
