How it works

The Achieve programme is run as a club in schools and alternative education settings across the UK. If there is a programme running in a young person's school or centre, they should speak to the Achieve club Adviser about joining the club. 

Alternatively, for young people who cannot access the programme in a school or education setting, we offer the programme as a 10-week course at a Prince's Trust centre

What's involved?  

Young people will be involved in activities such as: 

  • Personal development and employability - young people will boost their confidence, make new friends and improve communication skills
  • Life skills - through engaging activities, topics such as resilience, breaking habits, health and wellbeing and employability will be explored
  • Community projects - to develop their team-working skills and allow them a chance to discover new talents 
  • Literacy, language and numeracy - to gain essential skills to succeed in daily tasks such as money management  
  • Skills-boosting activities - from robot building to rock climbing and app making to archery - there is a variety of extra-curricular activities on offer

No two Achieve programmes are the same, as the course is tailored for each centre. The above activities are not an exhaustive list, but instead show a flavour of the type of activities a young person may get involved in. 

Where is it run?

In addition to delivering in schools, colleges, youth offender institutions and pupil referral units; our Achieve programme can be delivered in a Prince's Trust centre in England and Scotland.

As Achieve is a flexible programme, it can be delivered either as a club in an education setting or as a ten-week programme in a Prince's Trust centre
