Springboard Women’s Development Oxford – early bird booking until end March


Places are filling on the Springboard Women’s Development Course starting in Oxford on 28th April. An early-bird discount is available until 31st March.  Springboard is a work and personal development course which encourages women to take the initiative in their own development, set and achieve goals, and build their skills and confidence.  Participants have been found to be more open to change and better at managing change.  They learn how to change attitudes, feelings and behaviours which hold them back.   A 10-year survey of benefits is available at bit.ly/springox

Here’s what managers and employers have said about Springboard:

I have a different view of her now.  She will take a high level of responsibility rather than expect direction and instructions.  I feel more confident about giving her responsibility.

It has helped me in my own workload…I can concentrate on what I need to get done…it has overcome my delegation problem.

Springboard is an excellent, comprehensive and innovative course which has been very well received by both the women who have participated, and managers who have commented on the positive changes in the women’s attitude in general and their behaviour in particular.  Bristol City Council

The Springboard programme is highly relevant to the NHS today, as it goes through a major period of change.  The programme is cost effective and meets the organisation’s needs by developing the individual who becomes more effective at work. Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust

And here are more testimonials from the participants themselves:

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

The course helped me to think more clearly about how to achieve my own goals. At the same time it provided valuable insights into how to improve confidence and engagement within my team. The course couldn’t be more aptly named – it provides a springboard to taking the next career step with confidence.  Sue Bale, Publishing Director, ELT Dictionaries, Macmillan Education (gave this testimonial 20 years after attending Springboard)

Women find out about the open programme from their places of work and from their friendship networks.  Please pass on this information to colleagues or friends who may be interested or might know someone who will benefit.

Thank you.
