At TCG we’re incredibly passionate about bridging the gap between our classrooms and the world of work. Much of your future workforce is currently in education. Sharing your knowledge, experience and advice will inspire and inform their career choices – helping them to develop the confidence to move into a role that is right for them – and to be the right employee for you.
Employers often ask how they can engage with young people to raise awareness about their sector and business, help prevent future skills gaps, and identify potential talent pipelines all at the same time. Our suite of employer opportunities is designed help to meet these needs and range from guest speaker slots to attendance at careers fairs, through to work placements, site visits and more.
Students can shadow employees on a site tour to understand what a business does and perhaps take part in a small activity, if possible. These visits can span from an hour to a full day depending on the interaction a business is able to provide.

In addition to traditional short-term work experience, our students will have the opportunity to take part in our Industry Placement Programme, benefiting from 40-60 days with a top employer in the student’s chosen sector, linking what the students are learning in the classroom to practical application in the sector. The college will support employers to build the placement on an individual basis, setting objectives and goals for the student to achieve during their time on placement.
