Fresh participants have celebrated completing the Women’s Springboard Development Programme.

Springboard is an award-winning international programme which allows women to identify the clear, practical and realistic steps they want to take, and allows them to develop the skills and self-confidence to take those steps.

The latest programme was for women working in a range of roles across Bedfordshire and Luton.

"The Springboard programme has been absolutely fantastic," said Ola Hill, Governance Manager & Emergency Planning Lead (Beds & Luton), who was among the participants.

"The emphasis throughout has been on positivity and how to focus on finding solutions. I am already using Springboard tools and techniques every day at work."

The participants completed their training on July 8, 2019, where they were congratulated by Michelle Bradley, Director for Bedfordshire and Luton Mental Health and Wellbeing Services.

Springboard is used by employers across the UK and overseas because it delivers results in the following areas:

  • Improved ability to deal with change
  • Enthusiasm to take on more responsibilities
  • A boost of positivity and confidence
  • Improved problem solving
  • Highly motivated and more focussed staff
  • Improved customer service
  • Hugely improved communications
  • A vast contribution to Diversity objectives

This is the second year ELFT has run the programme for staff.
