We provide Spark Students with the tools and support to develop the following ten competencies, making them ready for the future.
We are proactive, acting with initiative and independence. We persist when challenged, with hope. We adapt in the face of adversity and capitalise on changing circumstances (personal, professional, social, cultural, geographical).
We value diversity, share and listen to opinions. We offer support, seek help and capitalise on each other’s strengths.
We are eager to explore and intellectually curious. We are able to formulate questions and keen to expand our own knowledge.
We feel secure in our relationships based on trust. We are empathetic, expressing care and warmth for ourselves and others.
We have the courage to take ownership of our own development and stand up for our beliefs and values. We balance this courage with consideration for the needs and feelings of others. We practice forgiveness and grow from difficult conversations.
We are honest, taking responsibility for our actions. We act from strong moral principles.
We reason from first principles, take risks and create new, engaging and inspiring ways of working, learning, and living.
We embrace our emotional needs and those of others. We understand our inner voice and build healthy habits in order to thrive in our lives.
We ask questions, analyse, evaluate and understand before forming opinions in order to solve problems and assess performance and contribution. We reflect on our paradigms and develop effective ones.
We are humble. We show appreciation and generosity. We share and celebrate joy.
