Dedicated Workshops for Students

Springboard Consultancy is extremely pleased to be able to offer a wide range of solutions to support all students at this difficult time.

We have new interactive development workshops to provide positive support to students during this time of great uncertainty. Open to all, irrespective of gender, these are in addition to our female-only flagship programme SPRINT, which can be delivered during lockdown remotely or face to face during normal circumstances.

Springboard Consultancy will help and support students to maximise their full potential by empowering them, giving them self-belief and an opportunity to achieve their goals. This is critical as latest figures suggest that only a third of graduates are confident about securing a role after University due to coronavirus.

1-hour virtual workshops to keep your students connected

We all have responsibilities to make sure that the right tools are in place to create an inclusive and productive studying environment for our students.  Physical barriers, do not have to keep students from engaging with each other and it is vital that they still have that sense of belonging, support and purpose from their University.

To show our support, Springboard Consultancy have developed a series of 1-hour “Virtual Workshops”.

The workshops will be fully interactive and give your students a sense of being connected, feeling valued and give them that sense of belonging.

We can offer a wide range of topics including:

  • Introduction to Resilience & Wellbeing
  • Best practice for Home Studying
  • Building personal resilience
  • Maintaining positive relationships
  • Managing stress and pressure: Making choices
  • Building effective networks remotely
  • Maintaining self-confidence in challenging times
  • Developing your own personal health and wellbeing plan

Eliminate the Barriers 
Every student has the right to have a rich, fulfilling and enjoyable University experience so their wellbeing is vital.
