Here’s a look at what you’ll get up to during Team:

Meet new people

Day 1: Meet new people

Don’t worry about turning up on your own – there’ll be about 12 people joining and everyone will be in the same situation. It’ll be informal and there are plenty of activities so you’ll soon feel part of the group.

Week 1: Take action

Over this week, you’ll start planning for the weeks ahead – setting out what you want to achieve and finding out how to get your qualifications.

Week 2: New experiences

You’ll spend this week away – trying new things and learning how to work with others. This gives you a chance to break away from your current situation – trying canoeing, climbing, raft-building and much more.

Your Team

Weeks 3-6: Something to talk about

As a Team, you’ll decide on a project to benefit your local community and carry it out. This gives you great experience to talk about at interviews.

Weeks 7-8: Work placements

This is the time to see how the skills you’ve developed so far can help you in the workplace. It’s also a great chance to try out a type of work, or company, to see whether you like it.

Week 9: Plan for the future

You’ll get help to write a fantastic CV, practice your interview skills and write applications.

Your community project

Weeks 10-11: Meet the challenge

You and your Team will take on a challenge to help others in the community. This is when you get to test out all the skills you’ve developed.

Week 12: Have your say

In your final week, you’ll deliver a presentation – giving you the chance to show off the talents you’ve discovered! This may sound scary now, but after 12 weeks you’ll be surprised at how far you’ve come.
