LONDON — Nov. 1, 2021 — BJSS and its leading in-house digital design consultancy, SPARCK, today announce the addition of a new stream to the BJSS Academy. For the first time, SPARCK will be running its own stream, focusing on product design.

“We’re excited to launch SPARCK’s very first training program, which will form a part of BJSS’s ever-growing and award-winning Academy ecosystem. Over the course of an intensive four-week training program, our new Junior Designers will grow their design skills and learn from some of the industry’s leading product designers”, says Rebecca Laycock, SPARCK’s Academy Coordinator.

“User-centered design is a huge part of our business and is being increasingly used across our public and private sector clients. It’s therefore essential that we continue to home grow talented designers who will be responsible for creating cutting edge products and services for real people.”

This year’s SPARCK Academy includes modules on:

  • design thinking methodologies.
  • product design best practice.
  • new and upcoming design systems.
  • core consultancy skills.

The SPARCK Academy will be run in a hybrid working model, supporting a combination of virtual and in-person working. It runs across all of BJSS’ UK locations.

The 2021 SPARCK Academy begins on Nov. 1, 2021. Applications for the first intake have now closed and will reopen in the not-too-distant future. To learn more about the SPARCK Academy and register your interest for our 2022 intake, please visit
