That’s our vision and it’s what we’re working towards.
Here’s how we’ve been getting on.

Thanks to innovative partnerships, we continue to find new ways to inspire students...
In higher education:
20,000+ students enrolled
70+ Subject Spotlights
11,000+ leads for universities
We partnered with the University for the Creative Arts to deliver a taster of their computer games and animation course and UCL saw a great level of engagement in their ever-popular pharmacy Spotlight with dozens of Springpod students going on to apply and several being made offers in this application cycle.
With our employer partners:
200,000+ students enrolled
200+ Virtual Work Experience cohorts
We worked with Amazon to deliver Class Chats, bringing highly specialised knowledge directly into participating classrooms about hot topics like A.I.

We also took our first steps into the Metaverse in 2023, with an award winning work experience programme and partnered with Viasat to run an online competition promoting sustainability in space.
Our programme with JLL and META won "Best Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Initiative" at the Official IWFM Awards.

The professional’s choice
Here's just a selection of the professional and industry bodies we have worked with this year
We’re delighted to now be partnered with 15 professional bodies by the end of 2023, including the likes of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the CIPD and Health Education England.

We worked with the ICAEW, to help them enhance knowledge of the accountancy sector, bring increased brand awareness and reach groups traditionally underrepresented in the industry. At the time of publishing this programme has been shortlisted for the RAD Awards 2023 for ED&I.
Social Impact
£11 million
in social value created
2.4 million hours
of pre-employment training delivered
of students completing our programmes are now confident about finding a job in the industry
Springpod’s social impact in 2023 involves some pretty big numbers. Springpod’s growth during the past 12 months has ensured that our positive social impact in 2023 eclipsed that seen in previous years.
From the 752 students who undertook the Thames Water programme, an impressive 89% finished saying they felt confident about finding a job in future.
That’s a wrap
That’s our wrap up of the previous 12 months and where we’re looking to make a difference in 2024 and beyond. We’re excited to see where this journey of democratising careers education takes us and if you’d like to get involved we’d love to hear from you.
