Eight students from North West Regional College (NWRC) have just completed a course aimed at building confidence and motivation in young people.
The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is a twelve week course for young people aged between 16 and 24.
Applications are now being accepted for the next Team Programme course which will begin on Monday, January 15, 2018 at NWRC.
The programme is free and allows participants to gain increased confidence, motivation and employability skills.
During the twelve weeks, participants will be involved in a challenging programme that is delivered in a fun and interactive way. It will also be an opportunity for them to work towards a nationally recognised qualification.
Sean Curran, Team Leader Prince’s Trust, explained that participants do not need to have any previous experience or educational qualifications to take part.
He added: “The entire 12 weeks have been designed with the young people in mind and include a two-week placement that has been tailored for them as individuals.
“The feedback we received from our most recent participants was that they found it very beneficial and they enjoyed the 12-week element to the course which is broken up into learning, residential, team work and work placement.”
The course is open to young people in Derry/Londonderry, Strabane and Limavady.
The course is a partnership between NWRC, the Prince’s Trust and the European Social Fund
