Our nationwide Prince William Award provides a context within which young people aged 6-14 years can develop the confidence to think independently and make positive, informed decisions by learning to consider the impact of their actions and behaviour on themselves, on others and on the world around them.
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.

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.

“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
