Jack Petchey’s Spark Programme
The Jack Petchey Spark Programme is a new initiative, inspired by Sir Jack’s own motto “If you think you can, you can!”
Jack Petchey Spark at Home Programme
During the COVID-19 pandemic, BTS Spark have worked with the Foundation to adapt their resources into an online course young people can access for free from home.
The programme is a self-discovery programme for young people divided into 10 self-led sessions with interactive activities and covering a wide range of topics.
Usual Jack Petchey Spark Programme
Delivered by BTS Spark, the programme will build young people’s personal resourcefulness and sense of agency. It will help them to understand how mindset affects our ability to be our best, to achieve our goals and overcome problems, and build relationships with others. It will give young people the tools and insights to help them to be at their best more of the time, even when facing tricky challenges and stressful situations.
The programme begins with a one-day workshop delivered in school by BTS Spark facilitators, with follow on and home learning tasks designed to be delivered through tutor time or PSHE lessons to support young people in putting their learning into practice. All students will receive a practical handbook to capture their learning and remind them of key concepts, with teacher briefings, resources and guidance provided for school staff.
BTS Spark brings a wealth of expertise in enabling personal change and building leadership skills, developed through working with over 41,000 leaders in many of the world’s top companies, and in hundreds of schools. The Jack Petchey Spark Programme is specifically designed to unlock the shifts in mindset and behaviour that will enable young people to cope successfully with pressures in and out of school and to develop the resourcefulness to successfully navigate their secondary school years and transition to adulthood.
The programme will be piloted with Year 9/10 students in five schools in Spring 2019. To find out more or put your school forward for the pilot programme, please contact Amelia Gabriel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
