Helen Ivory, Springboard trainer at Cumbria Police

Helen describes the benefits of using the Springboard programme within Cumbria Police. There was a real need to do more to develop women police officers and support their progression into promoted posts. After taking a Springboard programme, women are keen to take on more responsibility and put themselves forward for promotion. This benefits the organisation massively because they then have a bigger talent pool to choose from.
