Day 1: Meet new people
Don’t worry about turning up on your own – there’ll be about 12 people
joining and everyone will be in the same situation. It’ll be informal and
there’ll be plenty of activities so you’ll soon feel part of things.
Week 1: Take action
Over this week, you’ll start planning for the weeks ahead – setting out what
you want to achieve and finding out how to get your qualifications. You’ll also
be planning for a week away.
Week 2: New experiences
You’ll spend this week away on residential, trying new things and learning
how to work with others. This gives you a chance to break away from your current
situation. The sort of things you could do include canoeing, climbing,
raft-building and much more!
Weeks 3-6: Something to talk about
As a Team, you’ll decide on a project to benefit your local community and
carry it out. You might be surprised at what you can achieve together. This
gives you great experience to talk about at interviews.
Weeks 7-8: Work placements
This is the time to see how the skills you’ve developed so far can help you
in the workplace. It’s also a great chance to try out a type of work, or
company, to see if you like it.
Week 9: Plan for the future
Time to plan your next steps after the programme. You’ll get help to write a
fantastic CV, practise your interview skills and make applications.
Weeks 10-11: Meet the challenge
You and your Team will take on a challenge to help others in the community.
This is when you get to test out all the skills you’ll have worked on so
Week 12: Have your say
In your final week, you’ll deliver a presentation with your Team to an
invited audience. This is your chance to show off the talents you’ve discovered!
This may sound scary now, but after 12 weeks on Team you’ll be surprised at how
far you’ve come.
