TCPID Business Partner Workshops
A series of student workshops take place in May every year. These are only available to current students of the Certificate in Arts, Science and Inclusive Applied Practice.
The workshops are designed and developed by our TCPID business partners who also provide student work placements and graduate internships. Students typically have the option to do between two and three workshops each week in May. The final schedule of workshops is provided to all students in April. Some of the workshops will take place online and some will take place in the company offices.There are a different set of workshops for 1st years and 2nd years.
The aim of the workshops is for students to get to meet with some of our business partners and to learn about the companies and what they do.
The workshops are not a part of the Certificate in Arts, Science and Inclusive Applied Practice course but are provided as an additional resource for students who wish to take part. There is no formal assessment for the workshops, but students will be required to submit a weekly reflection.
The workshops are designed to help students to develop some key skills like the ones listed below which will help for future work placements and for any graduate internships or further courses after they complete their studies in Trinity College:
• Communication skills
• Presentation skills
• Office administration skills
• Teamwork skills
• Research skills
• Professional behaviour
• Interview skills
• Your first employment contract
• Budgeting skills
• Website design skills
