After more than two decades of working with the Prince’s Trust, Tresham College’s Paul Hamblin has received a certificate and silver cufflinks at a special ceremony held at Abington Avenue United Reform Church, Northampton on Wednesday 1st December.
During his 22 years of service, Paul has work with an amazing total of 75 Prince’s Trust Teams and supported more than 1,000 young people aged 16-25.
“It is an honour to work with the Prince’s Trust. At the start of every course there are some young people that can barely look me in the eye, but by the end of the twelve weeks they are able to stand up before an audience and give a professional presentation.”
The twelve week Team programmes help young people to develop their communication skills, improve their self confidence and gain work experience. Previous participants, who have gone onto gain employment or run their own business, often come back to encourage the latest recruits.A full story of Paul’s princely efforts is here:
