what can you gain?
When you sign up for spark* not only will you gain new knowledge and valuable skills, you'll be connecting with a group of like-minded people and apply what you learn to every day challenges and issues.
Each day you face problems to solve. When you disrupt your thinking you'll discover more creative ways to fix things. You may even solve old problems for good. That's rewarding. And it makes you invaluable.
For any business to survive, it constantly needs to find ways to grow and expand. If you're able to see past the present, and imagine what the future could be, you can develop future visions and strategies. That's empowering. And it will give you the edge.
It takes courage to step outside your comfort zone and into the unknown. But if you have the confidence to do it, what you discover there could be what changes the game. That's smart. And what a great way to stand out in the crowd.
In this fast-changing landscape, businesses need people who can anticipate the future and constantly be one step ahead. So that when the market moves, you're ready. That's exciting. And you get to future proof your career.
According to the Adobe "State of Create" Report, only 31% of people feel like they are living up to their creative potential. And 70% of people interviewed believe that being creative helps make people better workers and leaders.

Helping people and workers improve their creativity is critical to the future of the UK economy, and many businesses and workplaces are not yet set up in ways that reward or foster this skill. To inspire innovation, workers must be equipped with the right training and tools.
