Getting Started

A great business has a talent pool of great people. Here in West London there is a pool of talented students on your doorstep, and we can help you reach out to them and excite them about careers in your industry. Our close collaboration with local schools gives industry partners a range of opportunities to support young people: from mock interviews or speed networking (where a small group of students question a business volunteer about their job for 10 minutes), to running a 40-minute workshop about your industry.

Our key corporate partners include: Sky, GSK and Thames Water as well as many other global and local employers across West London.  Please explore the benefits of becoming a Spark! partner and get in touch if, as we hope, collaboration with us captures your imagination.

A vast range of opportunities is available to our partners, including:

  • Consultancy and masterclasses – Spark! provides bespoke consultancy and masterclasses, developed with the Institute for  Education Business Excellence, covering Government policy, Curriculum developments, Qualification developments, Labour market intelligence and Safeguarding young people.
  • Volunteering– Volunteering opportunities include:
    • Mock interviews and speed networking
    • Providing CV advice
    • Workshops about your industry
    • Careers and Higher Education Fairs
  • Industry Insight Days – Consider whether you could host a group of 15 students to spend a day in your business learning about your industry.
