Prince’s Trust course at NRC

THE Northern Regional College is now recruiting for the Prince’s Trust Team programme at its Coleraine campus.

The course, which begins on Monday, February 20, is open to all young people aged 16-25 years, who are not currently in full-time education, training or employment.

An exciting and challenging programme offers young people the opportunity to obtain a City and Guilds Level 1 Certificate in Personal Development and Contributing to the Community qualification.

This course commences on September 26 and runs over a twelve week period. No previous education or experience is necessary.

Students on the programme will participate in outdoor pursuits, team building projects, planning and community projects, have the opportunity to gain experience within a work placement, develop their skills in preparing CV’s, job applications, interview skills and obtain career advice.

Course Co-ordinators for the Prince’s Trust programme Suzanne Marshall and Gerry Drake at the college, say: “This is an excellent programme for young people to consider, if they are not currently in full-time employment, training or education.

“The course is free to the student and it does not affect a young person’s benefits. We ensure that the programme is delivered in a fun and interactive way, while challenging at the same time.

“Participants of this course will learn new skills and will gain increased confidence, motivation and other employability skills while working towards a nationally recognised qualification”.
