School Services Open Day 2024

Are you passionate about making a difference in the lives of young people?

If so, then The Spark’s School Services Open Day is the perfect opportunity for you to explore a fulfilling career supporting children and young people in educational settings.

You can attend either the in-person event where we will give you a comprehensive understanding of who we are, the roles we offer within the school’s service, and what a typical day might look like for you. Or join the online information session for an overview of the essentials.

The day is suitable for qualified CYP counsellors wishing to explore new opportunities, as well as for individuals trained in COSCA skills who have an interest in working with children or are looking to gain experience as groupwork facilitators.

Information and job application packs will be given to you at the end of the event.
