Here is a snapshot of the projects we intend to start over the next 3-6 months. If you are interested in working with BrightSparks on any of these projects please do not hesitate to get in touch.
WORKING WITH CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE TRAINING
BrightSparks is in the final stages of acquiring funding to roll out a programme of training courses in various areas across the City of York and North Yorkshire to deliver entry level short courses aimed at supporting people to gain employment or volunteering opportunities in the children's workforce.

TENDERING - THE COMMISSIONER'S GUIDE TO GETTING IT RIGHT
Tendering is a nightmare to get your head around for any organisation, but more and more public money is being funnelled through procurements. So if you are a small organisation looking to grow, it is important to understand how tendering works and what commissioners are looking for. BrightSparks will be rolling out a programme of half day workshops designed to provide those people and organisations brand new to tendering with an understanding of the fundamentals of creating successful and compliant tender submissions.

COMMUNITY ENTERPRISE CAFE
This has been an ambition of the team at BrightSparks for a while and we are committed to opening our first Community Enterprise Cafe in 2017. Fundraising to support this project has already begun and will be gathering speed over the next couple of months. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter feeds for more on this project.
