Prince’s Trust Achieve programme
Inspire Suffolk’s Prince’s Trust Achieve programme is one of Inspire Suffolk’s education programmes tackling NEET prevention for young people aged 12-16 (years 8-11).

Wendy Toogood, Careers Officer – Stoke High School said: All of the students involved always look forward to their sessions with you, tell me they thoroughly enjoy them and get so many benefits from them; particularly with developing their confidence and self-esteem. Staff have noticed a difference in the students and are finding that they are definitely more engaged in learning. I would say that, because these young people are dealing with major barriers to their education and the dynamics of the two groups could be extremely interesting/challenging, key to the success of the sessions is having the right people delivering the course and being able to establish a rapport with hard-to-reach young people.
