We Know You Can Achieve More Than You Imagine

What’s in it for me?

  • Access to a variety of jobs

  • Impressive CV and cover letter
  • Customer service qualification
  • More confidence
  • 12 months of career coaching to support you in work

If you’re aged 16-24 and struggling to find work, Spear could be for you. Spear has worked with over 4,000 young people, helping them into work or further training and giving them a fast track to career success. It’s an award-winning programme that really works. See where our centres are.

  • Get your purpose back.
    Stuck at home feeling bored? Spear offers you somewhere to come each day for six weeks, and then a job you can be proud of.
  • Get prepared for work.
    Our coaches help you with your CV and covering letter, plus interview practice and opportunities to meet employers. You’ll gain a customer service qualification by the end of the programme too.
  • Grow in confidence.
    Some people lose confidence when they’re unemployed. Spear helps you believe in yourself again, as well as improving your communication and teamwork skills.
  • Find a job or apprenticeship, or return to education.
    When you’re ready, we will help you apply for jobs or training that matches your skills.
  • Build a successful career.
    Once you’re in work, a coach meets up with you regularly for a whole year to help you overcome challenges, increase your earning potential and develop your career. 75% of people who complete Spear get into work or return to education, and are still there a year later.
