The Prince’s Trust team program is a 12 week course for people aged between 16 and 25. The course’s purpose is to help those seeking work to build up their confidence and gain experience in their particular field of interest. Since I have started the course, I have been working hard on boosting my team building skills along with my self-confidence.
As part of the Team Program I went on a 1 week action packed residential at Allenheads Lodge where all the activities were based on teamwork. This included exciting activities such as canoeing, rock climbing, orienteering, night walking, mountain walking and mountain biking. These activities helped me to gain more confidence and improve my communication skills with others. What I am most proud of is helping out the community of Felledge for the RSPCA as part of our community project. Since we have started this task we have helped clean the place up, laid some new paths and also assisted in putting up new fence panels.
I signed up for this 12 week course because I am currently seeking advice on starting my own business as a website designer & IT technician. I am currently on a 2 week work experience placement with Firefly New Media to help me gain the necessary skills in different areas. These include how to go about setting up a business of my own along with helping me to learn about the world of advertising and marketing.
