The Springboard Charity will be speaking at the What University? & What Career? Live Virtual Event.
The Springboard Charity has been going now for over 30 years. At The Springboard Charity we specialise in nurturing young people into careers in hospitality, leisure and tourism by equipping them with the inspiration, knowledge, skills, advice and guidance they need. We do this through our award-winning education programmes in schools, colleges and universities. Providing specialist careers, advice and guidance to champion and strengthen the hospitality industry, promoting it as a rewarding and worthwhile career path. We collaborate with our business partners to attract and retain talent and equip hospitality businesses with hard-working, motivated and enthusiastic staff now and in the future.
Furthermore we help transform the lives of people who have barriers to work and can benefit from our support, so that they get sustained employment in hospitality, leisure and tourism, whatever their age or background. We do this by providing tailored support, quality programmes, dedicated aftercare, access to work experience placements and ultimately sustainable employment. Working in tandem with our business partners we are tackling youth unemployment and poverty across the UK. We are dedicated to helping people achieve their potential and on improving perceptions of the industry. We build skills, confidence and morale to aid a full recovery of the hospitality, leisure and tourism sectors.
