The Springpod team are a pleasure to work with - their specialists are always on hand to support us through the process and have helped us to design and deliver work experience that is innovative, informative and relevant

Claire Shore
Blackburn College

Springpod has justifiably emerged as a market leader in providing virtual work experience. The range of opportunities offered is impressive and keeps expanding.

Sam Burnett
Reigate College

Springpod worked closely with us and our branding agency to create a completely unique and bespoke set of Open Events that incorporated Live Q&As/webinars, Live Chat and pre-recorded material presented in a fantastic interactive 'map'. I have been particularly impressed with how they have created a microsite that resembles our own website.
