RECAP Springboard Full Programme (Women in Research)

The Springboard Women’s Development programme is designed for women from all backgrounds, ages and stages of their lives. It allows women to enhance their own skills and abilities, challenge power and equality, while building confidence, assertiveness and a positive image. Whether you want to further develop your career, improve your life skills or set practical, yet stretching goals, this course will provide the tools to inspire and empower you to change your life.

What does it consist of?

The Springboard Women’s Development Programme consists of four ingredients:

  • four one-day workshops over four months with an experienced Springboard trainer
  • a workbook packed with practical activities and ideas
  • positive role models
  • networking with other women from across Coventry University

Postponed until Further Notice

Due to the on-going COVID-19 situation and in light of the collaborative and face-to-face format of the programme, we will be postponing the full Springboard programme until further notice. The Doctoral College & Centre for Research Capability and Dvelopment look forward to working with the Women in Research Network again in the future.
