Every year DCCT supports the Prince’s Trust on its Get Started programme.

Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10m a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1bn every year.  The Prince’s Trust addresses this by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most by helping to develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training.

Get Started helps young people that are unemployed and aged 16 to 25 years who want to develop new skills, build confidence and have fun. Participants receive an intensive week of activities and qualifications run by professional football coaches and tutors as well as opportunities to make new friends and get help and support after the course is over.

Get Started is a free six-week programme located at Pride Park Stadium. You will:

  • Gain a FA Junior Football Leader Award Level 1 (JFL)
  • Learn a range of coaching skills from a professional football club
  • Spend an enjoyable week improving your teamwork, confidence, and communication.
  •  Enjoy a Lazer Quest session
  • Receive three months support after the programme to help you decide what to do next.

All travel costs are taken care of and lunch will be provided every day.

This programme has provided a great deal of success over the years with many young people progressing to gain the FA Level 1 Certificate in Coaching Football and into part-time paid employment with DCCT.

Our next Get Started will take place Monday 25th November – Friday 29th November 2019.

Come along to our Taster Day taking place Wednesday 20th Novmeber for more information.
