Springboard picked up two awards at the 2023 Movement to Work Youth Employability Awards in London this week.

Manchester-based programme delivery manager Tom Stephenson was crowned Mentor of the Year for his work supporting more than 220 beneficiaries through employability training courses in the past 12 months. The judges highlighted one particular course in which Tom helped 100% of trainees secure jobs.

Meanwhile Springboard won Partner of the Year for our innovative approach to delivering employability training and tackling youth unemployment with Movement to Work member Diageo.

Springboard has delivered Diageo’s Learning for Life programme in the UK since 2014, supporting more than 5,500 people through training courses and giving them the skills and knowledge to secure work in the hospitality industry.

Springboard CEO Chris Gamm said: “I’m delighted for Tom and all the Springboard team. They work so hard changing the lives of young people, and to get the recognition of these prestigious awards is richly deserved. A huge thanks to Diageo for your partnership in delivering Learning for Life and giving young people the skills and opportunities to launch their hospitality careers.”
