The Achieve programme in a Prince’s Trust centre supports 13 to 16 year olds to develop the skills and confidence they need to engage and succeed in education through relevant, engaging and informal learning in our Prince’s Trust centres.
We support young people to improve their attainment, attendance, personal and social skills and engagement with education. Achieve is a flexible programme which can respond to the needs of young people. The programme can be delivered in one of the Prince’s Trust’s 18 centres across the UK.
The Achieve programme can help young people to:
- Develop valuable personal and social skills that underpin success in education
- Take responsibility for their attendance and behaviour
- Meet positive role models and access opportunities to set their own goals, in support of developing a positive attitude to learning
- Take part in engaging activity, using residential trips, one-to-one meetings and adventurous activity to encourage learning
- Access a relevant Prince’s Trust qualification in Personal Development and Employability Skills
The Achieve programme is designed to help young people reengage with education through a combination of engaging group activities and one to one support. The programme works like this:
- Each young person has a personalised induction period. During this period, we work collaboratively with referrers to determine what the outcome of the programme should be for each young person.
- A fun and engaging induction period helps to get young people feeling comfortable and committed to the programme, and ready to participate fully.
- After the induction period, a young person will begin a clearly structured programme that is run by our specialist staff over ten weeks, with scheduled programme days
- In weeks 7 to 10, we will work with young people and their education providers to establish a reengagement plan that is appropriate for each young person and help them make the transition back into an appropriate education setting.
