Our nationwide SkillForce Junior Prince’s Award, supported by our Royal Patron, HRH The Duke of Cambridge KG KT, develops confidence and resilience as well as leadership and teamwork skills.
“I learnt so much from being in the Army. They really drum into you the importance of resilience, leadership, courage and discipline. To be able to pass on those values and the importance of respect for others is fantastic, and a real privilege."
Alex Young, Former British Army soldier
SkillForce has helped me improve on my knowledge and experience in working with young people. I’ve learnt so much with SkillForce; working with different age students has broadened my experience and adaptability to work with students of all ages.
Nikki Laker, Former Army Cadet Force Adult Instructor
I now feel like I’m part of the education cog that’s helping to develop these kids into better people. What I like about the SkillForce programme is that it’s not working on the academic side of things, it’s working on life skills which I think is having a massive effect on the kids.
