“The team managed to encapsulate the brand of Siemens brilliantly, with relatively little guidance. The staff were really engaging and professional to work with.”

“The ability to engage with larger cohorts of students and the recruitment and on-boarding of students made Springpod stand out to us. It’s a fully moderated, high quality programme with resources and excellent value for money. We were particularly delighted with the gender, race and ethnicity inclusion of the student cohort.”

Siemens is a technology company centred on the industries that form the backbone of economies – manufacturing, infrastructure, and transport with over 16,500 people across the UK.

The problem

Hitting the Gastby Benchmarks

Siemens consulted Springpod for a more rigorous programme, that was able to meet Gatsby Benchmarks 5 & 6, engaged with the Siemens employees throughout the process and put safeguarding of the staff and employees at the centre of their programme. 

Meeting Siemens high standards

The fully moderated programme and facilitated webinars meant Siemens had a virtual work experience programme that was of a high standard - Springpod were there to manage the whole application process.

Our solution

Seamless Interaction

Siemens were looking for a seamless interaction between their employees and Springpod, one that assisted with accreditation of the students work and boosted engagement with under-represented groups that may not have been possible with other solutions.


The fully moderated programme means that employers never have to worry about safeguarding young people. The live webinars are run without the use of student webcams or names, and only the presenter can see who has attended - meaning students and employees data is protected.

Springpod also assists with the marking of uploaded work from students, making administrative duties of the virtual work experience a breeze.

Building awareness

Interest in the Siemens virtual experience reached over 1000 applications, with over 700 completions across those who enrolled. On average, students who participated rated the course 8.6 out of 10 and were likely to recommend it to a friend.

One success from the experience was the awareness of careers within the industry that students gained. From start to finish, awareness had increased by 47.8% with an increase of 13.4% for those who said they were likely to consider a career within the industry.
