Celebrating success with the Prince's Trust
We are committed to ensuring young people have opportunities to develop and gain employment. That’s why we work with the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service to invest in the Prince’s Trust Crewe Team providing personal development opportunities for unemployed young people aged 16-24.
Working with the Trust we offer work experience placements, a business mentor, and the opportunity of an apprenticeship. We also encourage our partners and contractors to support the Trust.
55 young people have undertaken four community projects and successfully completed the 12 week programme. 11 young people secured work experience with us and one has progressed to a partnership apprenticeship role with Wulvern and Cheshire East.
One of our projects won the best in the North West prize at the Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards in recognition of the impact on the local community. Rob Allen Director, of Partnerships and Jan Melia, Regeneration Officer were awarded Prince’s Trust Champions status and Wulvern featured in the North West promotional film.
Kai Brereton (A Team Apprentice of the year) a Wulvern Tenant shares his experience of the Prince’s Trust Development Programme.
“Before joining the Prince’s Trust I had been unemployed for two years. I had no confidence, hated being around people and was unable to find work. I signed up to take part in the programme unsure what to expect. I was taken out of my comfort zone, experienced responsibility and given leadership roles. This experience boosted my confidence, helped me to make friends and develop skills for the workplace. I have since secured a modern apprenticeship with Cheshire East and Wulvern working on the Total Community Improvement project based in the West End of Crewe, which I am really enjoying. I would advise any young person to get involved."
