Springpod and DfE Partnership

2nd February 2024

This week Springpod, managed by Senior Investment Manager Hannah Williamson, announced their partnership with the Department for Education (DfE), giving young people the chance to explore T Levels, apprenticeships and Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs) through online taster courses.

These on-demand and free courses are available on the Springpod website to provide participants with engaging insights into technical education pathways, featuring interactive elements, videos and quizzes, resulting in a certificate upon completion.

The featured testimonials from T level, apprenticeship and HTQ students ensures that the courses provide a real insight of the day-to-day experience.

Springpod Co-Founder and CPO Oliver Fisher said of the partnership: “Our mission here at Springpod has always been to empower young people to take control of their future, and it’s very exciting for us to work closely with the Department for Education to develop engaging online courses that will help them do this. The educational landscape is changing, so we feel it’s of great importance to open young peoples’ eyes and ears to technical education options, such as T Levels, apprenticeships and Higher Technical Qualifications, because it could help them make life changing decisions and put them on a pathway to a brighter future.”
