SPARK TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR INDIVIDUAL EDUCATORS

We have an engaged group of Certified SPARK Facilitators who are bringing this program into their community and schools, and we are thrilled that the SPARK Mentoring Curricula are now being taught in classrooms around the US, the UK, and beyond. 

If you’re an educator and would like to #ShareTheSpark in a meaningful way, then our training programs can provide you with everything you need to deliver our curricula with confidence. In fact, we have a 90% success rate of those who’ve successfully gained paid contracts after being trained by us to use the SPARK Curriculum.

We train Certified SPARK Facilitators both in-person and online, so no matter where you are in the world, you can help children and youth find their SPARK, and enhance your career.

WE OFFER TWO LEVELS OF SPARK CERTIFICATION TRAINING:

1. Certified SPARK Facilitator

As a Certified SPARK Facilitator, you’ll be given a deep understanding of how to use the SPARK Curricula by learning directly from the founders and creators of the program. As a fellow educator, we’ll give you everything you need to deliver this program with confidence, clarity, and plenty of fun! We’ll walk you through the program objectives, review lessons with you, and explore hands-on demonstrations of the activities. We’ll also provide coaching on how to start teaching the SPARK program at your local school or community organization, and get paid to do so.

At the end of our program, you’ll walk away with a certificate stating you have been trained by The SPARK Initiative to deliver the SPARK program as a Facilitator.

As an individual teacher committed to making a difference, you’ll be able to take this Curriculum and share the SPARK in a classroom near you!

2. Certified SPARK Trainer

Our Certified SPARK Trainers have been hand-selected by the program founders to act as ambassadors for our program and valuable extensions of our team. Not only are they extensively trained in how to facilitate the program, they are also empowered and supported by The SPARK Initiative to partner with their local school boards, and deliver training to educators, faculty, and staff on how to implement the SPARK Curricula with their students. As extended members of our team, they earn a contract commission on their dedicated work with schools, and are also named on our website.

If you are already a Certified SPARK Facilitator, and are interested in taking your training and career to the next level, we encourage you to contact us, and submit an application for this highly personalized training program.
