The Prince's Trust offers young people the opportunity to achieve a qualification in Personal Development and Employability Skills (PDE) whilst participating in the Achieve programme. 

Flexible, easy-to-deliver and tailored to meet young people's needs, the qualifications recognise the breadth of personal skills, qualities and attitudes valued by employers, giving learners the opportunity to:

  • Develop their own personal growth and engagement in learning
  • Engage in learning that is relevant to them 
  • Prepare themselves for progression into further education programmes, apprenticeships or other work-based learning 
  • Develop literacy, language and numeracy skills 

Through Achieve, young people will produce a portfolio to showcase how they've met the PDE qualification assessment criteria - supporting your staff from start to finish.
