An interactive course to help kick start your career

Our Vision

Spear is a free, interactive, six-week course to help you kick start your career.


Spear’s vision is "to ignite a ‘vision of the possible’ in unemployed young people, to build their confidence and ability to effect life-changing choices; and to develop their leadership potential within the local community."


The highly interactive course addresses the most common causes of underachievement, such as the absence of motivation to consider opportunities, life skills, and job search skills; and the need for information, advice and guidance, qualifications and opportunity.

Of those who graduate from the course 75% are still in employment or training one year later.
