We are proud to annouce – Our Partnership with Spice

Last updated August 29th, 2014

Have you ever thought how much simpler it would be if we didn’t have money?
If we could trade our time to ‘buy’ the services we’d like – after all time is the most precious ‘currency’ we have.
In 2003 a company called SPICE developed a clever concept – the Time Credit System, built on the values of mutualism. It started in Wales in 2003 and has spread throughout the UK, employing 26 staff.

How SPICE Time Credits work:

Time Credits are issued by community staff such as youth workers, teachers and housing officers. The Credits are printed notes that enable people to exchange them locally for fun activities, or to broker their own exchanges with neighbours for mutual support (e.g. gardening, dog-walking, lifts to the station).
Time Credits are brilliant as they act as an incentive to encourage more people to get involved in their local community and volunteer their time. Public services and local community groups identify current and new opportunities for people to contribute their time. The new opportunities are based on the interests, skills and availability of local people, and are enabled and supported by community services.
The credits are particularly successful at engaging the socially isolated, older and younger people and in generating a culture of mutual support.
Event Academy is proud to announce its partnership with SPICE. We have donated three Online Event Management Diploma courses that can be exchanged for SPICE credits. Our three SPICE students have just begun their course and we are confident that the learning will raise their skills and build their confidence to embark on more involved projects – taking them wherever they aspire to be.
