What is the Prince’s Trust?

The Princes Trust programme offers support in preparing you for your future as a young person. Founded in the UK they have helped over 1,000,000 disadvantaged individuals transforming their lives. You could be one of these people with this fantastic program.

At Dumfries and Galloway College if you are between 16-25 years old, we can offer you the opportunity to gain confidence, practical skills, and support for your future. The programme has been aimed at young individuals who may have had difficulty in their lives. This includes people who have found education difficult, been in care or have left care. We also accept anyone who has had youth or criminal justice involvement that wishes to turn their life around.

You will gain confidence by meeting new people, learning new skills and becoming more self-reliant by organising and creating a project. This course has been designed to give you the chance of finding the direction you want to follow by creating a plan to identify your skills and possible future pathways. This could be through further education or employment; with Dumfries and Galloway College you could get one step ahead.
