Join us for Springboard Live events in 2022

Inspired by our Springboard video bank, we're launching a series of workshops led by the graduate students who have made some of your favourite videos. Each talk is aimed at pupils in Years 11, 12 & 13 and lasts for one hour, consisting of a workshop on the topic, information about the graduate’s own educational journey and an opportunity to ask questions. Please use this booking form to register your interest in attending one of our Springboard Live talks. There are no limits on how many live workshops an individual can attend; we only ask that you watch the relevant Springboard video prior to attending the livestream.
