Spear Islington is for 16-24 year-olds facing a range of challenges who are not in education, employment or training (NEET). Building on the success of the Spear Programme in London, it offers young people in Islington the opportunity to challenge their mindset and improve their work readiness. It gives them a kick start to their career and to finding long-term employment.

What it is

The Spear Programme consists of six weeks of coaching to overcome barriers and challenge attitudes and behaviours. The participants learn practical skills such as how to write a good CV and take part in mock interviews. This is followed up with a year of support for each candidate to help them find a job and succeed in work.
