Youth unemployment is a big issue for everyone and the biggest issue, as we see it, is that the longer a person is out of work, the more their talent diminishes along with their confidence. We wanted to set up a programme to make the most of all the talent that is out there that is currently being wasted. So we created the Spring Project to do just that. The Spring Project provides a self-sustaining source of world class personal development training to those individuals who would otherwise be unable to access or afford it. The practitioners at The Spring Project are adept at inspiring purposeful practice in those that attend the courses. Over 3,000 people have participated in training since its launch in January 2010.
The Spring Project is now embarking on an extended programme of its acclaimed Radical Employability training days and week long academies for unemployed graduates. By bringing together employers, world class practitioners and inspiring speakers to its training and development centre in London it provides the conditions for transformational behavioural change to occur within a rapid time frame.
