Frequently asked questions

If you have any questions about using Springpod, please get in touch at hello@springpod.co.uk. We’ve also outlined some areas below:
Safeguarding
As you can imagine, student safety is a top priority for us and safeguarding is part of any product development. For our experience programmes specifically, we have several safeguarding features in place, including: We have limited and explicit data collection. Parental consent is required for students under 16 years old to take part in our programmes. Our staff are DBS-checked and will be responsible for the in-programme communication with your students. There is an anonymised help-desk, monitored by Springpod team. Live webinars are one-way only for video and audio. All live-webinars are moderated by a member of the Springpod team.
Reporting
Once you have created your free teacher account on Springpod you'll be able to request access to your student engagement report (from your teacher dashboard). We will verify that you're a member of staff at the selected education institution and help you to put in place a data sharing agreement with Springpod. You will then be able to see which of your students have participated in our virtual work experience programmes.
Why are some programmes free?
We offer free virtual work experience and degree taster programmes for school and college students because employers and universities pay Springpod to promote their opportunities to young people interested in their industries, subjects or career paths.
How should I share this with students?
Please direct your students to visit springpod.co.uk. They'll then be able to create their student accounts and link themselves to their school or college.
