FOR educators


At Inspire 2 Ignite, we’re not just about skills; we’re about fostering personal growth, resilience, and a hunger for learning. Our mission is to inspire, empower, and transform the lives of young individuals, especially those in alternative provision or at risk of being NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training). We light up their paths, reignite their passions, and equip them with the skills they need to shape a promising future.

Inspire 2 Ignite changed everything for me. It wasn't just about learning stuff; I found this hidden power inside me.

Thank you for an amazing project, which I am sure will have a long-lasting positive impact on our young people. This experience will be life-changing.


We work with both corporate and community partners to curate transformative events and experiences to create opportunities for the young people we work with. Here are some examples…

Curious About Industry Experience with MOLA

Lead Ignition coach Sam Squire took a group of 16-24 year olds to our first ‘Curious About Industry’ experience at the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA).

At MOLA’s processing centre in Stansted, the group had the opportunity to learn and explore technology and archaeology, channelling their creativity.

The young people worked together to produce a short film from scratch during their week with the archaeological professionals.

Curious About Ice Cream with Olive Academy

We took five students from alternative provision on an entrepreneurial journey, learning about business and igniting their characteristics. Guided by our Lead Ignition Coach, Sam Squire, the students took charge of the cart and steered the project, building their brand, negotiating with suppliers, setting prices and learning how to entice and sell to customers. The young people also learned about food hygiene, licensing requirements, and the art of pitching for space at events or co-working buildings.

The young people came away from the day oozing with newfound confidence and proudly told our Founder, Alex Hughes, “I can talk to people”, “I can sell”, and “What is next? I want to learn more about business”.
