Young people need experience

Work experience has traditionally been hard to find, difficult to organise and inaccessible for many students.

More accessible than ever before

Creating your own virtual work experience programme means that any student with an internet-connected device can take part. You can include live elements such as webinars, but also make the programme available on-demand so students can complete it whenever they prefer. Students will no longer miss out because of their location or poor timing!

Personalised around individual student needs

Building your own college programme means that you’ll meet your student's individual education, skills and employability needs. You can tailor the programme for students on specific courses or to include local employers that you have existing relationships with.

Every student guaranteed a place

Running your own programme means that you decide which students take part -  they'll be guaranteed a place. You can also fit the programme into your existing curriculum. Our comprehensive reporting means that you’ll understand student participation and be able to help anyone who is struggling or who could do with a nudge.

Each programme contains

Live webinars with time for Q&A
Assignments and work projects
Quizzes and interactive exercises
Certificates upon completion
Professional presenters
Bespoke video content

Meet your Gatsby Benchmarks

We offer a holistic solution covering all Gatsby benchmarks but our bespoke programmes are particularly important for Gatsby 1, 5 and 6.
Gatsby 1

Stable Career Programme

Your custom programme can be used with students across courses and year groups, ensuring that all students access the same high quality, meaningful experiences.

Gatsby 5

Encounters with employers and employees

Colleges partner with employers that are suitable for their students. Students will be able to have meaningful encounters with employers by having the ability to ask questions in live webinars. They’ll learn about an employer’s mission and values and find out about their career paths.

Gatsby 6

Experiences of workplaces

Students can see what the day to day life in a particular profession looks like. They'll explore their workplaces, complete activities and tasks, and receive valuable employer feedback -  thereby ensuring students are active participants in the process of securing meaningful experiences. Springpod will work alongside employers to define the learning outcomes and make sure the assignments are relatable to your students' age range or level.
