What students say

Thank you for this work experience course. It was clearly well organised and constructed with an attention to detail. I enjoyed all of the live webinars as they were extremely engaging and hearing from a professional brought in an aspect of reality. I found that the Springpod staff on the webinars were extremely thorough and made sure to get as much valuable information out of the guests as possible. I would again like to say thank you to everyone as this work experience really helped me gain an understanding of the field I would like to go into in the future.
Thank you so much to those of you who were involved in creating this programme. It was really interesting to gain an insight into the different sectors each of you are involved in. I really enjoyed grasping an understanding of the qualities best suited to each role and enjoyed listening to the career pathways each professional took on the webinars. I would also like to thank the presentations and structures of each module it was really engaging and easy to understand.
I really appreciate this course and the time and effort you've dedicated to this. I started off thinking that managing a business is just dealing with affairs and ensuring it runs smoothly. To now understanding that it's more than that, with components of finance, IT, marketing, and communications that allow the business to keep running. With this knowledge, I can now properly plan out my future with a larger view of what the industry is.
