Prince's Trust Get Into
Get into courses, are for those aged 16-25 who are unemployed, and offer intensive training and experience in a specific sector, such as sport, construction - or one of many more. The courses provide training from qualified professionals to help young people improve their teamwork and communication skills, boost their confidence and develop their interview skills and CV at the same time. Help and support towards getting a job are also provided after the course finishes.
The courses run from two days to a few weeks.
They are completely free and won’t affect your Jobseeker’s Allowance or Universal Credit.
Prince's Trust Future Steps
Future Steps is an employability course to help those aged 16-30 navigate their next steps. These free and interactive workshops will help you to identify your aims and goals, develop your confidence and communication skills, and focus around supporting you to develop skills that will help you ace any interview.
The team will also provide you with a 1:1 mentor, and help review and develop your CV.
