The Prince’s Trust, established by the now King Charles, continues to thrive as a launch pad for the lives of young people.
In Bedford the Prince’s Trust Teams is run out of The Bedford College Group, based in its High Street Learning Centre.
New Team Leader is mother of two, Alix Waddington, who took her degree in Education and Psychology after a career working with people with mental health issues. One of six siblings in her family, Alix will be well equipped to manage the expected team of 15 who will start a 12-week course on February 6th. This will include a residential trip to the Peak District, and then, closer to home, fund-raising and a community project, all helping to build up the confidence of the young people, develop their skills for the workplace or further education.
The Bedford College Group has a winning track record with running Prince’s Trust Teams courses, so much so it was featured on a recent TV report. Newcomer Alix knows she is joining a supportive team.
“We are starting again following the lockdowns and this means re-establishing links with local businesses who may be kind enough to offer sponsorship or to support us by offering a week of work experience to some of our team,” said Alix,
“We know that businesses have undergone major changes, but we hope that will create some opportunities for those looking to show young people the ropes when it comes to employment.”
