Spear at Clapham Junction - Coronavirus

After running a reduced service and supporting our past trainees, Spear Clapham Junction is now gearing up to run the Spear Programme: Online. Starting on 15th September we will run two Spear Programmes on Zoom following three successful online pilots in London, Brighton and Leeds.

Young people are predicted to be the hardest hit as we emerge from lockdown and we want to respond to this. The Spear Programme: Online will continue to focus on confidence, mindsets and the vital skills and resources young people need to get in to work or education. By delivering weekly group and 1-1 coaching sessions, we hope to counteract the devastating impact this time has had and present young people with a way forward. 75% of our trainees get into work, education or training and are still there a year later and we know that because we are still in touch with over 90% of them.
