Literacy, Language and Numeracy

The Prince's Trust recognises that effective literacy, language and numeracy (LLN) skills are critical to developing a young person’s confidence and provides them with a gateway to employment and back into education.

Our vision:

At the end of their Prince's Trust journey, our young people will:

  • Describe themselves as more confident in their literacy, language and numeracy skills and recognise that with new strategies, support and hard work, they can improve these skills.
  • Regard employment and education programmes which require English and Maths as within their reach.

We will:

  • Provide every young person with an opportunity to build literacy and numeracy skills in a personal social development (PSD) or vocational context.
  • Promote the importance of literacy and numeracy in everyday life and work and encourage positive attitudes to learning: “everyone can improve their literacy and numeracy skills”.

On these pages you'll find materials and resources to help you maximise opportunities for literacy, language and numeracy learning on the Team programme. 

If you have any questions or would like to share resources or success stories of your own, we would love to hear from you. Get in touch with one of the team by clicking the button below.
