BeyondMe

Help us prevent young people from falling into long-term unemployment by engaging them earlier and more effectively with the world of work.

*This project is reserved for BeyondMe teams setting up from Deloitte*

The Prince’s Trust believes that all young people, regardless of background, should have the opportunity to fulfill their potential.

Prince’s Trust programmes break down into 3 broad areas:

 Education and prevention: Helping young people make the most of their time at school, increasing their chances later in life.

 Personal development and inspiration: Building the soft skills and belief that young people need to overcome joblessness.

 Enterprise and employment: Connecting young people directly to economic opportunity through vocational skills training and mentoring.

Our 'Achieve' programme is a flexible provision for 11-19 year olds who are experiencing challenges with attendance, attainment or motivation and may be at risk of exclusion or not attaining the grades they are capable of. It helps young people to discover their talents and passions when mainstream education is proving challenging and de-motivating.

The course builds life skills in such areas as employability, entrepreneurship, active citizenship and personal social development and gives young people the opportunity to develop important character skills through relevant, engaging and informal learning. It connects young people with the world of work and equips them with the transferable skills and knowledge they need to succeed, focusing particularly on literacy, language and numeracy (LLN) and science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

The Prince’s Trust is looking to diversify its offer to young people and increase its reach.

One way in which we are doing this is making our programmes and resources available online through Prince’s Trust Online. We're looking for a BeyondMe Team’s support to explore what our digital offer could look like within the education space, alongside a current evaluation of the programme which is currently being conducted.

The project will seek to answer questions like the following:

1) Who is our competition in the market of digital support for educating young people in personal/social development, enterprise and employability?

2) Of our competitors, what is their penetration and outcomes?

3) What gaps are there in the market?
