Ten unemployed young people from Wandsworth and neighbouring boroughs last night celebrated completing The Prince's Trust Team programme run with South Thames College. The course was the 250th to be run with the college.
The Trust's Team programme is a 12 week course, which gives young people the skills and confidence they need to find a job or progress to further study. South Thames has been delivering the programme in Wandsworth and the surrounding area since 1996 and has supported 4,000 unemployed young people in that time.
