How it works
Team is a challenging, structured 12 week programme for teams of 12-15 young people which combines outdoor and community challenges with classroom based learning.
It begins with team-building activities, including a week at a residential activity centre.
It continues with teamwork on real projects in the local community, individual work placements and a presentation of achievements.
Personal development takes place throughout by the process of planning, action and review, where young people:
- Uncover hidden talents
- Assume some responsibility for tasks
- Develop team-working and communication skills
- Gain awareness of their local community and how they can contribute to it, and
- Gain nationally-recognised qualifications
In the UK, Team is delivered by The Trust’s network of over 300 delivery partners ranging from Further Education Colleges to the Fire & Rescue Service.
