Launched in 2021, the Podium Programme runs alongside the pathway to ensure that the Academy can keep in touch with its alumni, so that drivers who have graduated from Team UK can still access support should they need it . Recent graduate drivers and Co-drivers who are performing at an elite level, may be invited to be a part of the programme.
The Podium programme allows benefits to the athletes such as the following:
- Share experience and develop skills by mentoring an Academy member
- Continued network and community of fellow Academy members and contacts
- Continued access to performance advice and guidance
- Access to resources and virtual sessions
- Continued access to benefits via the academy partners
- Attendance at appropriate and relevant Academy events
