Prince’s Trust – priorities 14/15 Programmes: Delivering excellence for young people People: Developing a high quality team of staff, volunteers and delivery partners Resources: Growing income and efficiency Reputation: Leading the Youth Sector
EFA update – Team in England In recognition of work to embed LLN into the core programme, the Education Funding Agency (EFA) has stated that the Team programme acts as a ‘stepping stone’ towards a GCSE in these subjects and will therefore be treated as meeting the condition of funding for English and maths in 2014/15 and beyond. In addition, the programme now has a greater ‘cost weighting’ (meaning Delivery Partners can access more funding per 16 to 18 year old learner). The outcome of this news is that the programme is now an even more attractive proposition for colleges who want to cater for young people without having to put them all through GCSE maths and English.
JCP Partnership As of 14th July, The Prince’s Trust has renewed its partnership with Jobcentre Plus (JCP). In the three years since it was last reviewed, there have been changes in policy and personnel at both organisations. In short, the partnership promotes The Prince’s Trust as a positive referral option for the JCP advisors who want to move their clients from a position of claiming benefits into work or education.
JCP Partnership It makes it possible for young people to continue receiving their out-of-work benefits whilst on the programme, thereby making Team a financially viable option for young people. It can also minimise the amount of interruption from JCP for young people whilst on programmes, by allowing JCP advisers to use alternative arrangements for signing on appointments.
Insight project The aim is to provide young people with a seamless journey from initial contact through programme matching, via delivery to positive outcomes A new website with better content, navigation and enquiry process for young people A relationship management system to enable consistent, digitized information on our young people A management information system providing accurate, timely consistent reporting
My Big Idea On the 29 th September, The Prince’s Trust launched a campaign, supported by RBS, to encourage unemployed young people to start-up in business. The campaign – #MyBigIdea happened over a three-week period and featured a host of new digital content including ‘side- splitting’ films based on bonkers business ideas. You can help to spread the word and share the films with your staff, contacts and the young people you are working with. Download the content pack on Team DP page to find out how to can get involved.
