At Spark! we work closely with schools and their teaching staff to help young people develop their employability and enterprise skills through a tailored range of activities to enhance their understanding of the world of work.
Spark! coordinates a vast array of activities that bring together the local business community and educational organisations. We are working with a growing number of schools across North-West London and we have been designated by the Hounslow Education Improvement Partnership (EiP) 14-19 Strategic Group as the lead agency for education-employer engagement across London Borough of Hounslow.
Spark! develops a bespoke programme for each school to assist in delivering their work-related learning and work-based learning priorities. The bespoke packages enable schools to select activities from an extensive menu in our Services Guide to shape a programme that gives maximum value to the school and your learners. (For a shorter read you may also like to look at our summary Service Guide.)
Our range of approaches, developed in conjunction with our business and community partners, is targeted at primary and secondary schools, as well as colleges. We presently deliver three key services to schools and colleges:
- Consultancy and CPD – develop your school’s strategy and develop your skills.
- Employability and enterprise skills – 50+ events a year, including KICKSTART our cutting edge employability and enterprise skills programme, which includes popular speed networking and mock interview activities.
- Work Experience placements & Internships – 1000+ placements a year, from Industry Insight Days to extended placements and Internships.
All members of Spark! staff and our specialist third-party contractors are DBS checked.
