Welcome to Spark

Spark is a state-of-the-art careers app that has responded to the current challenges young people face, to enable them to explore their future careers and connect, in real time, to major employers.
 

Spark does what the name suggests: it helps ‘spark’ or ‘ignite’ young people’s interest in rapidly changing future opportunities, many of which they may not have realised existed or considered suitable.
 

What it does not do, is seek to replace the teacher or careers leader; rather it empowers them to inform, encourage, include, motivate and inspire.
 

The Spark app can accompany and help young people beyond their school and college life into their early careers.

 

Schools & Colleges can register for free and provide the app to their students. Spark helps them deliver on the Gatsby Benchmarks and provide students with rich careers resources.

Students get to engage with employers in live online events and learn about careers on any device wherever they are.
