Prince's Trust

Support for Young People


If you’re unemployed and between 16 and 25, you can meet new people, gain new skills and train on our Team programmes in Thurrock and across Essex.  It helps:

  • improve job prospects
  • gain qualifications
  • take part in residential projects
  • take part in a community project
  • develop new skills

As part of the course, you'll also spend some time developing your interview and CV skills to ensure your confidence is sky-high for when taking the next step. It’s completely free and won’t affect your Jobseeker’s Allowance.  



The Prince's Trust provides free 'on-the-job' courses that will help you gain valuable experience. Working with some of the largest employers in the country, across a range of sectors, the Get Into programmes will help improve your CV and interview techniques. Some courses include a trial shift with potential job offers available at the end.
