The Springboard Women's Development Programme won a National Training Award for quality and excellence. It is designed to enable women to reach their full potential by analysing their skills, values, qualities, setting goals for themselves and then achieving them.  For employers, it provides an opportunity to develop talented individuals and enable them to take responsibility for their development within the organisation.

In a recently published major survey, Personal Development Has Legs, including feedback from participants in Springboard over a 10-year period:

  • 79% of respondees had evidence of being better at managing change
  • 78% had taken more responsibility
  • 77.5% had evidence of greater assertiveness
  • 71% had greater motivation at work
  • 80.5% had increased self-esteem and confidence
  • 64.5% had received favourable comments in their formal appraisal

Springboard motivates participants to give more to their work and take responsibility.  It can be used for career development or general personal development.

Springboard consists of four one-day workshops spread over three months and a 300-page workbook. Role-model speakers and networking are other important elements. Springboard courses can take between 12 and 80 women at a time so can be very cost-effective.

The training is particularly suited to non-management grades up to first-line management.


Topics covered include:

  • Analysing skills
  • Assertiveness
  • Improving effectiveness at work
  • Work-life balance
  • Managing image
  • Career development
  • Setting goals
  • Taking initiative
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Managing stress
  • Problem-solving
  • Fulfilling potential


"I would recommend this course to anybody. It has already helped me immensely, with both work and personal subjects, in such a short space of time. It has kick-started my motivation and I will continue working towards my goals with help from the workbook". Jacqui Stanley, National Grid

"An excellent opportunity to learn more about yourself and how to maximise your potential.  A supportive structure to identify personal issues and overcome them." Suzanne Read, Vodafone Global Enterprise

"Springboard has taught me about myself that I can be assertive, I can be confident, and that I have to change my exposure and image to make people realise how well I perform." Nina Ewerhardy, Sony Professional Solutions Europe
