The Princes Trust TEAM Programme

Added: 23 September 2021

  • Recruitment: The Prince’s Trust work with local referral partners to recruit applicants via criteria mutually-developed with M&S. Applications can be made directly to The Prince’s Trust, local referral partners or through employee referrals.
  • Induction and training: M&S and The Prince’s Trust provide an initial induction prior to placement, followed by additional training modules throughout the four weeks to hone skills developed whilst working in-store, improve confidence and prepare them for any future job search.
  • On-the-job training: During the four-week programme, participants complete on-the-job training in an M&S store. Regular feedback and guidance are provided via a dedicated buddy to ensure the participant is achieving M&S standards of customer service.
  • Evaluation and post-programme support: If the participant performs well and receives a satisfactory evaluation from their manager and buddy after placement, they may go straight into a vacancy if and when one becomes available. If the young person requires additional support prior to employment, or if a job vacancy isn’t available at their store, they will be offered up to six months post-programme support with The Prince’s Trust to find an alternative outcome.
  • Work with top employers such as M&S, HSBC and the NHS, which are ready to hire fresh talent, while improving your CV and interview techniques. Some courses include a trial shift with potential job offers available at the end.
