A core aim of our work in the Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities is that our graduates should have the same opportunities in life as their fellow graduates of Trinity College, including opportunities for further education, meaningful ongoing employment and the ability to contribute to their local community.
Our Business Partners play a central role in helping achieve these outcomes for students. The companies involved in the Business Partners network represent significant relationships for our students which are essential for educational placements and establishing opportunities for transition to sustainable employment.
The practical and financial support that we receive from our business partners allows us to secure the future of the TCPID and to develop further opportunities for our students and graduates. We believe that the full inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities in education, employment, and society should be a right, not an aspiration. Students and graduates of the TCPID demonstrate clearly that, if offered the appropriate supports and opportunities, they can make meaningful contributions to society. Our graduates are inspiring others to follow in their footsteps by showing what is possible when people are given the opportunity to fulfil their true potential.
The continued involvement of Business Partners enables us to deliver key aspects of our mission and provide transformative opportunities for students and graduates, including:
- Student Work Placements
- Graduate Internships
- Permanent Employment
- Funding to Support the Programme

We are keen to continue to grow our relationships with Business Partners and to expand the network of companies who contribute to our work by providing work placements and opportunities for students to develop key skills and competencies, enhancing their future employment possibilities.
If you would like to explore how your company can become involved in this ground-breaking programme – through providing work placements, graduate internships or other supports – we would be delighted to work with you to find the right ‘fit’ for your company and employees. Please contact Marie Devitt at email@example.com to find out more about how you can get involved and really make a difference to these students’ lives.
We acknowledge and thank all of our Business Partners who play a vital role in advancing the innovative work of the TCPID.
