Springboard has become a regular feature of our training and development programme in the NHS in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough with over 500 women having taken part. Time and time again we see participants on the programme take the knowledge and skills developed through the programme to transform their lives and move forward in their careers. Many of these women come to the programme feeling ‘stuck’ in their career or lacking confidence in their ability to progress. During the months on the programme, their self-esteem increases and their confidence grows. This development programme provides the environment for women to take back control of their lives and start moving forward in line with their values, creating greater happiness and satisfaction.

I can honestly say that the Springboard Programme changed my life. At the start of my work journey I did not really know what I wanted to do. However, Springboard made me think about how success in both work and life depends on having clear goals and objectives, and being aware of how you interact with other people. It all seems common sense to me now but all those years ago I really did need the focus Springboard that gave me. I have that now and am thoroughly enjoying my working life. I’ve been very successful with some amazing jobs, including very senior ones. I would recommend this Programme to anyone starting out in work who wants to know just how to go about achieving all your ambitions.
Julie Spence, Lord Lieutennt of Cambridgeshire
Springboard is tried and tested in the police context, has an impact on women in the police and delivers results. It is a key component in achieving the Gender Agenda. I have no hesitation in recommending it throughout the police service.
Debbie Greenwood, University of Leeds, UK
No guarantees were made at the start of the Springboard programme that careers would automatically be affected by undertaking the programme, indeed some women attend the programme for more personal reasons, never-the-less there has been a good deal of achievement that is work-related.
Not only have the individuals benefitted from gaining extra increments, upgrades and qualifications, but the departments and University have benefitted as can be seen by the wide range of additional responsibilities that the women have assumed since attending the programme. 46% have received extra payments, 20% have been upgraded, 39% are undertaking or have taken further qualifications, 61% have assumed additional responsibilities and 82% have had remarks made about other positive outcomes.
Rainy Faisey, FCIPD, MBA, MSc, Deputy Director of Human Resources, Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust, UK
Springboard Consultancy programmes are highly relevant to the NHS today, as it goes through a major period of change. The programmes are cost effective as they are designed for high volume attendance, yet the end result is that individuals feel they have attended a programme designed just for them – incredible!
The Springboard and Spring Forward programmes meet the organisation’s and individual’s needs on several levels by developing the individual, (who then becomes more effective at work) and encouraging individuals to resolve domestic issues that may be impacting on their work performance.
Many of the lessons I learnt from these programmes I have put into play, benefiting me, my employer and my family – both now and in the future. I can thoroughly recommend them for any NHS Trust.
Les Johnson, Technical Resources Manager, Engineering, University of Warwick
Achieved its objectives and exceeded my expectations. A thoroughly worthwhile exercise. Everybody should do this.

Fresh Steps has helped me out of a rut. I felt very negative and undervalued as a long term employee. Fresh Steps has made me see I still have a lot to offer.

A refreshing change to concentrate on yourself. A chance to be ‘selfish’ in the nicest possible way. To take stock of your life, to feel refreshed and ready to go. A practical guide to ‘me and my future’.
Was a very enjoyable, life learning experience, which has made me realise I’ve a lot more to offer and I’m not over the hill and ready for the scrap heap!
