Work Placements and Graduate Internships
Our TCPID Business Partners provide us with student work placement and paid graduate internship opportunities.
Our student work placements take place in between February and April each year and are for one morning per week for a period of 8 weeks.
Our graduate internships are usually for 6 months for up to a maximum of 20 hours per week.
From the student / graduate point of view, the work placement / internship experience is of huge benefit in terms of increased independence and self-esteem. The skills developed go far beyond the daily tasks that the person is taught to complete.
From the business partner’s point of view, the experience is also a very rewarding one. The placement / internship allows businesses to work closely with, and mentor a student which then helps their own staff to develop additional skills. The TCPID works closely with the businesses before, during and after the placement to support them throughout.
In the video below, Paula Conradie, Kieran Biddulph and Tomas Murphy, all graduates of the TCPID tell us about their experience with some of the TCPID Business Partners.
