The Prince’s Trust Achieve programme provides development programmes for young people aged 13-19 years helping them develop the skills, confidence and self-esteem needed to progress into a positive future.
72% of young people who participated in an Achieve qualification last year felt that the programme had increased their education or training opportunities. 94% of young people who completed the Achieve programme in 2015-2016 were in education, employment or training three months after the programme ended.
Whilst on the programme, pupils will have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of activities related to Personal and Social Development, Life Skills, Active Citizenship, Enterprise and Preparation for Work and all pupils will be encouraged to work towards a qualification.
At Mill House School, we deliver a range of units and modules which contribute towards a recognised Prince’s Trust qualification and the personal, social and health education of students.
Pupils will be able to:
- make their own choices about what they learn
- build confidence in key curriculum areas
- take responsibility for setting and achieving their own goals
- build confidence and self-esteem
- develop skills needed to achieve their future goals
- gain a qualification in personal development and employability Skills.
Our chosen modules give students the chance to try lots of new things such as:
- delivering a community project and making a real difference in their local area
- learning new skills to help with meeting new people and building confidence
- taking on a business challenge to put their entrepreneurial skills to the test
- improving knowledge and the ability to look after themselves and live a healthy life
- writing the perfect CV to get ahead in their career choice.
