Our Prince’s Trust Achieve programme offers a personal development programme for young people aged 14-16 in search of a fresh approach to learning.

  • Increase confidence and self-esteem
  • Improve attendance and motivation
  • Improve social skills and behaviour
  • Re-engage with learning

The Achieve programme is designed to raise self-esteem and engage students to work with others on a variety of interesting projects. These build confidence, improve problem solving skills and help them find their own style of learning, which develops and encourages positive attitude and behaviour.

The programme provides students with the space and attention they need to gain new skills and confidence. It encourages young people to re-engage with education by ensuring learning becomes accessible, valid, relevant and attractive.

From this they can take greater ownership of their learning and development. Activities range from sporting activities, community work and basic cooking skills, right up to CV writing and presentation skills.
