Developing Young Talent

Up is a weekly outcomes tracker that enables young employees to match what they're doing with their personal career goals and soft skills development.


Our mission

We are on a mission to help businesses feel confident about training and supporting young talent.

Based on the approach of our parent charity Spark+Mettle, we’ve created Up: a web-based skills development and feedback tool that uses behavioural science to develop positive action, reflection and communication loops between young people and those who manage them.

Up provides the framework for turning young people with exciting, raw talent into committed, motivated and communicative team players.

How Up can help you and your business


Enables companies to track their team’s productivity, skills and happiness


Supports managers to maintain effective communication cycles with their employees


Empowers young people to set their outcomes linked to skills and long term goals

How it works

At the start of the week, young employees set the outcomes they want to achieve for the week ahead.

At the end of the week, employees review how their week went: a good thing, a struggle, whether they achieved their outcomes and which skills and long term goals they applied to.

Managers can review and feedback on their employees’ outcomes, skills development and general wellbeing in a quick and easy way.

Managers can gauge productivity and happiness levels across their team in preparation for effective face-to-face conversations.
