A course run by the Prince’s Trust in Grantham is aimed at giving unemployed youngsters a chance in life.

If you are unemployed, aged 16 to 25, and want to learn new skills and earn a qualification, you can sign up to the Prince’s Trust Team Programme which starts in May.

Delivered by Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, the free 12-week course gives people the opportunity to develop key life skills in communication, problem solving and working as part of team.

They will also undertake a community project and work experience along the way. The course allows them to build an impressive portfolio, showcasing what they’ve learnt and what they have to offer.

If you or someone you know could be interested in taking part in the course, why not apply for one of the following courses starting in May.

The course starts on May 9 in Grantham. There are also courses running in Boston and Lincoln at the same time.

Navana Walden, from Boston, said she was thankful she had the chance to go on the Team Programme.

She said: “I hadn’t had much luck getting a job, so to boost my skills, I thought I would join the Team Programme. I thought it would help me to gain confidence, learn different skills and meet new people – I wasn’t disappointed.

“I had an amazing time and I won’t forget a moment! I really enjoyed my work placement at Age UK and I’ll continue to volunteer there to gain more experience and hopefully go on to get a full-time job.”
