Supporting the Spear programme in K+C

Coupled with the need for employment opportunities for local people, there is great concern locally about young people and especially those who are hard to reach and facing multiple complex barriers to gaining employment, education or training.

This is the second year of our partnership with Resurgo to offer the highly successful Spear employability programme in North Kensington. The programme provides young people who face employment barriers such as criminal records, few qualifications and mental health issues, a 6 week course with a year of further support, where they learn practical and soft skills, so that they are ready to enter the job market.  Young people are also offered a further year of support and coaching after completing the course.

Between September 2020 and February 2021, despite the evident challenges of Covid, 3 programmes were delivered online to 48 young people.
