Local Prince's Trust team celebrate at St. Andrew's

Thirteen students and their families were joined by Team Leaders Kelly Brookes and Gareth Hughes, Chief Inspector Stuart Bill, TV star Dee Kelly and many local businesses who have helped the programme.

The presentation was hosted by Prince's Trust students Amanda Lloyd and Ayisha Healey who completed 2 weeks’ work experience at the Club as part of the Prince's Trust Team Programme.

Both students have since joined our Corporate Hospitality team and now work on matchdays.

The Team Programme is a 12-week personal development course offering work experience, qualifications, practical skills, community projects and a residential week.

The Club currently work with three Prince's Trust teams - Digbeth, Solihull and Chemsley Wood and regularly take on students for work experience with the possibility of future employment.

Programme Executive for The Prince’s Trust Ingrid Ludolph said “Our Team programme helps unemployed young people gain the skills and crucially, the confidence they need to secure work.

“We are grateful to the long-standing support of Birmingham City FC, their enthusiasm and the opportunities they provide for young people taking part.”
Chief Inspector Bill added: “We deal with a lot of negativity and bad situations but it’s great to see a group of young people go and do something.”
