The Prince’s Trust Achieve programme is uniquely designed to support young people to progress into a positive future.

With flexible delivery methods and curriculum content, the programme is ideally suited to meet the needs and interests of young people, building confidence, self-esteem and core skills to prepare them for life beyond school.

The programme will tackle the dual challenges of youth disengagement and lack of employability skills by using a flexible delivery method and wide-ranging, relevant curriculum centred around project-based learning.

 

Programme Aims

Depending on the needs, challenges and backgrounds of the young people, the programme seeks to have a positive impact on four challenges that young people may be facing at school:

  • Attainment: young people predicted to achieve lower than 5 GCSEs with grades A*-C (or Scottish equivalent)
  • Attendance: young people with an attendance rate lower than 90%, or are choosing to miss lessons
  • Engagement: young person has behavioural issues that could lead to risk of exclusion or hindering their progress in education
  • Resilience: young people are lacking the soft skills, attitudes or appropriate personal and social networks to engage in education

 

Qualification Aim

The Prince’s Trust qualifications in Personal Development and Employability Skills recognise a breadth of personal skills, qualities and attitudes required by employers across a range of sectors. They have been developed with the aim of progressing learners into further education and/or employment and are available for use with pre and post 16 learners:

They give learners the opportunity to:

  • Develop their own personal growth and engagement in, and through, learning
  • Engage in learning that is relevant to them and support their development of personal skills and attributes that are essential for working life and employment
  • Prepare themselves for progression into further education programmes, apprenticeships or other work based learning
  • Develop their English and mathematics skills
