What to expect ....

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’ll be plenty of activities so you’ll soon feel part
of things.

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. You’ll also be planning for a week away.

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. The sort of things you could do include
climbing, abseiling and team challenges.

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. You might be surprised at what you
can achieve together. 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 gain work
experience with an employer.

Week 9: Plan for the future
Time to plan your next steps after the programme. You’ll get help
to write a fantastic CV, practice your interview skills and make
applications.

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’ll
have worked on so far.

Week 12: Have your say
In your final week, you’ll deliver a presentation with your Team to
an invited audience. This is your chance to show off the talents
you’ve discovered! This may sound scary now, but after 12 weeks
on Team you’ll be surprised at how far you’ve come.
