Success for Prince’s Trust students
The first group of students to complete a Prince’s Trust course in Exmouth are celebrating their achievement.
They completed the 12-week Prince’s Trust Team programme at a new centre in Exeter Road, run by Exeter College.
During the course, which helps unemployed young people gain the skills and confidence to get into work or training, the students have taken part in a residential team building trip, work experience, mock interviews and a community project.
They were awarded their Prince’s Trust certificates at a presentation attended by Exeter College principal Richard Atkins, Exmouth mayor Sandy Sutton and the Prince’s Trust’s Malcolm Cowper.
Student Robbie Boddy, 17, who has already secured a job in the town following a placement, said: “The course has put me on a positive line, helped my confidence and gained me a job. I would recommend this course to anyone, it’s just a shame it’s over!”
