A free course designed to help 16 to 25 year-olds prepare for work, get back into education or move on to an apprenticeship starts in Wisbech this month.
The 12-week Prince’s Trust programme includes challenging projects, teamwork, careers advice and work experience.
The programme, run by Cambridge Regional College, is designed for young people who are not in work, education or training. Three out of four people who complete it go on to work or college courses within three months.
The course, which is now open, is the first of three planned this year after the success of Cambridge Regional College’s first Prince’s Trust programme in Wisbech last year. It will be based at St Peter’s Church Hall in the centre of Wisbech.
A key part of each programme is a community project, with students raising their own funds to carry out the work, from transforming a children’s play area to creating a special garden for a local charity.
