Here is a hint. The resistor at the left is a thermistor whose resistance changes as a function of temperature. Thus this circuit is an audio oscillator whose output frequency varies with temperature. The potentiometer across the thermistor sets the oscillation frequency at a specific temperature.

Yup, trim pot is the same as trimmer potentiometer. The NPN PNP pair of transistors are acting as a simple audio amplifier for this circuit, where the base current for T1 is varied depending on the thermistor and potentiometer.
