Free course for young and unemployed

UNEMPLOYED people aged 16 to 25 are required to take part in a 12-week course to learn new skills and improve their confidence and motivation.

The Prince’s Trust Team is working with asphaleia in Worthing and will help to tackle youth unemployment in the area.

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 youth charity will help 55,000 disadvantaged young people this year, giving them the confidence and skills to turn their lives around.

A spokesperson for asphaleia said: “The team programme really works. Young people that take part say that they are able to achieve things they never thought possible before. It can be life changing.

“They gain work experience, employability, community and team work skills. It opens up real opportunities for them.”
