2 Our vision Every young person should have the chance to succeed. Our mission To help disadvantaged young people in the UK to change their lives and get into work, education or training. Our success  Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, education or training.  The Prince of Wales’s charity has helped more than 700,000 young people since 1976 and supports 100 more each day.

3 What we do  Help disadvantaged young people aged 13 to 30 who are unemployed, struggling at school or at risk of exclusion, including: in or leaving care facing homelessness mental health problems have been in trouble with law from workless households carer disabled About The Prince’s Trust We run eight programmes, all over the country, that all address specific needs of the young people who come to us. For this brief, we are focusing on just on our Enterprise programme, which helps unemployed young people start-up in business

4  We have received public sector funding from the European Regional Development Fund to deliver an Enterprise project during 2013/14 and 2014/15 ‘Sustainable Enterprise with The Prince’s Trust’ will raise awareness and secure participation of 2600 NEET young people onto our Enterprise Programme in 12 targeted Local Authority Districts  The money has allowed us to add more elements to our national offer, tailored specifically to this audience  Our reputation is at stake so we need to deliver against targets  This is a very hard-to-reach audience and we have been given very specific geographical areas to focus on Why we are briefing you

5 This document provides you with detailed information to support our brief to you which is to: Deliver an integrated marketing strategy, creative concept and marketing executions, that generates:  5200 enquiries from NEET young people in defined areas within the East Midlands each year.  This is so we can meet our contract requirements of securing 1300 young people a year on the Explore Enterprise programme as there is a 50% drop out rate at each stage. Achieving these KPIs will enable us to meet the targets set out by the European Regional Development Fund contract Our challenge to you – in a nutshell

6  Nationally, since 1983 we have helped to set up over 80,000 businesses  Last year, 6,038 young people joined the Enterprise programme nationally and 850 joined in the East Midlands About the Enterprise programme Young people

7  Last year 850 young people went on Explore Enterprise 4 day workshop – we need a 35% uplift this year (1300) and in 2014/15  The campaign needs to generate 5200 programme enquiries each year in order to secure 1300 young people on Explore Enterprise in 2013/14 and 1300 in 2014/15. This is due to a 50% drop out rate.  If we miss our target this year, it rolls to next year’s target  So far, since April 2013, we have recruited 188 young people (165 from ERDF areas). This has been done mainly through direct outreach. Programme participation Young people

8 5200 enquiries – the maths Enquiry By telephone or through the website We need to attract 5200 enquiries each year as there is 50% drop out rate Information/ inspiration Session One hour session to discuss the process We need to attract 2600 young people as there is a 50% drop out rate Explore Enterprise Four day in-depth course to understand what is involved in a business start- up We need 1300 in 2013/14 to go on this course 165 so far from ERDF areas Enterprise Start your own business We need 325 young people to remain on the programme and set up a business Young people

10 What we are offering these young people (Specific to ERDF contract – not national) Grants of up to £1500 per to help with business start up costs (namely marketing, equipment, insurances and raw materials). Range of discounted and free support offers for three years Test Trade Marketing Grant of up to £250 to test their business idea Specialist mentor (if needed) One-to-one business planning support with a Trust start-up expert to develop a business plan Four Day ‘How to start your own business’ Training Course (even if you don’t go any further) BIS loan averaging £2500 to spend on non-ERDF eligible items e.g. vehicles, training, stock coaching support to help business whilst in early stages of trading Growth Grant funding – up to £3000 to purchase items that will help grow or expand business Access to free seminars and networking events run monthly If you decide Enterprise is not for you, we offer Springboard sessions that aim to keep young people engaged and help them find what they do want to do Young people

11  As programmes run locally, NEETs are recruited locally using a number of tried and tested methods: 1.Push – includes putting up posters in local community areas, placing programme specific information on The Prince’s Trust website, Referral Executives and Job Ambassadors undertaking community outreach work, telling local referral partners about our programme and providing printed materials for POS 2.Pull – fielding general enquiries to our national helpline and allocating by geography to nearest programme (enquiries generated by word of mouth, local press editorial, job centre or referral agencies)  Generally, there is not the national resource to support local recruitment so niche marketing communications activity from our head office is limited How we usually recruit Young people

12 We are looking for you to deliver:  A well-considered, targeted marcomms strategy that enables us to deliver on contract objective. This strategy will be executed by a dedicated account team.  An overarching visual identity that is attractive to the audience (must reference ERDF in design)  Central key messages to make the offer marketable  A well-researched media/execution plan with timings (if media buying is required, we can manage this through our pro-bono agency, Msix if you prefer). We also have strong links with certain media owners.  Creative execution for different formats suggested in the media plan (must include at least one printed piece of marketing literature for youth outreach team to use) Your brief – the detail

13  All liaison with editorial media will be delivered by The Prince’s Trust Press Team, working on the plan provided by the agency and with guidance from the agency. Press releases may be drafted by agency however.  All social media activity needs to be delivered/signed off by The Prince’s Trust digital marketing team This is due to reputational risk of third party agencies communicating directly with the public on our behalf.
