The Spear Programme helps young people facing disadvantage into work or education. We know that young people have huge potential; we’re helping to change what they believe about themselves by equipping them with confidence, motivation and the vital skills they need to succeed in long-term employment.
What does it involve?
- Coaching to overcome challenging attitudes and behaviours.
- Practical training such as writing a good CV and mock interview practice.
- A year of support for each candidate to help them find a job and succeed in work.
What does it achieve?
We have a strong track record of achieving significant results: over three quarters of those who complete the Spear Programme get into work or further training, and are still there a year later.
