Research shows that young Australians are not being properly prepared for the future. Many struggle with their education and say that mental health is a big concern for them, with over half saying they lack confidence.
Prince’s Trust Australia provides opportunity for young people to transform their lives by preparing them with a portfolio of enterprise skills and capabilities required to thrive in an automated, globalised and rapidly changing world.
With the support of DeakinCo. and in co design with teachers, students and thought leaders, we have devised an Australian version of the Prince’s Trust Achieve programme. This supports school-age young people who are struggling with their education, to re-engage with their learning by focusing on enterprise skills and capabilities.
Achieve is a free, flexible program delivered by teachers in schools and alternative education settings with the support of the Prince’s Trust team.
The Australian pilot of Achieve in selected Victorian schools will take place in Semester two 2019, with expansion to other areas out in 2020.
