The Team Programme (Stafford Fire Station)


Available for 16-25 year olds who are unemployed (can work a maximum of 16 hours part time) and not in full time education:

“Team is a full-time 12-week personal development programme which aims to increase confidence, motivation and skills and, as a result, enables young people to move into employment, education, training, volunteering or an apprenticeship.” (Prince’s Trust)

The Get Started Programme (Across Staffordshire)


Available to 16-25 year olds who are unemployed and not in full time education:

“Get Started uses a theme such as sport, drama or music to inspire young people to take the first step to increase their confidence, skills and employability.

Through working with local partners, it provides an opportunity for young people who are unable, unwilling or lack the confidence to take part in a longer personal development programme, or may be unable to access such opportunities locally.” (Prince’s Trust)

The Fairbridge Programme (Cannock and Tamworth)


Available to 16-25 year olds who are unemployed and not in full time education:

Our Fairbridge programme offers a mix of group activities and one-to-one support to develop the skills and confidence to move forward.
Starting with a five-day Access course, individuals get the chance to do outdoor adventurous activities, as well as take part in a residential trip.
Once the Access course is complete, they can choose from lots of different activities from sports to drama and photography to cooking. We’ll work with you to help reach your goals.
