Growing with TCW: My Apprenticeship Journey

My journey with TCW began as an apprentice, and it has been an incredible experience that I am excited to share. At TCW, we believe in nurturing talent and fostering growth, which is why our apprenticeship program is designed to offer hands-on experience, mentorship, and professional development opportunities. Under the guidance of industry experts, I’ve had the privilege of learning and growing within a supportive and dynamic environment.

In this article, I’ll take you through my apprenticeship journey, featuring insights and quotes from my manager and our CEO, who have been instrumental in shaping my experience at TCW. Their dedication to the company’s mission and their support for the apprenticeship program have made my time here truly enriching.

My apprenticeship journey at TCW has been a transformative experience. From day one, I was welcomed into a supportive and dynamic environment where learning and growth are paramount. Each day has presented new challenges and opportunities, allowing me to develop my skills and confidence. This journey has not only equipped me with technical expertise but also fostered a profound sense of belonging and purpose within the TCW family.

Gemma Sutcliffe ‘Head of Marketing and Communications’ said;

“At TCW, innovation runs through our veins. We believe in investing in the future by nurturing the talents of our team and valuing the experience they bring, with particular support for apprentices. As Tyla nears the completion of her marketing course, we are proud to see the growth and creativity she brings to our team. In the UK, 61% of working adults believe that on-the-job training can be more valuable than traditional education for starting and growing careers, and 84% of employers have seen apprentices develop skills relevant to their organisation. We are no exception. Our commitment to fostering the next generation of innovative thinkers not only enhances their careers but also drives our company’s success. Together, we are building a brighter, more innovative future.”

An apprenticeship offers numerous benefits that extend beyond traditional classroom learning. For me, it has been an invaluable opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience in a real-world setting, allowing me to apply theoretical knowledge to practical tasks. This on-the-job training has accelerated my learning curve and given me a deeper understanding of my field. Additionally, working alongside seasoned professionals has provided me with mentorship and networking opportunities that are crucial for career development. The apprenticeship has also equipped me with a diverse skill set, boosting my confidence and enhancing my employability. Overall, the blend of structured learning and practical experience has been instrumental in preparing me for a successful career.

Ryan Dempsey ‘CEO’ said;

“It is so important to ensure your business is moving with the times and embracing positive change and improvements in the different departments of your company. The best way to do things today is not how we did them yesterday, in some cases, so for TCW we feel bringing someone into the circle who is committed to learning and applying todays methods ensures we keep current.”

Reflecting on my apprenticeship journey at TCW, I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities and experiences that have shaped my professional growth. The support and mentorship from my colleagues, manager, and our CEO have been invaluable, providing me with the guidance and encouragement needed to thrive. 

I look forward to continuing my career with TCW, contributing to our shared goals, and supporting future apprentices as they embark on their own journeys. Thank you for joining me in exploring the transformative impact of apprenticeships and the exceptional environment at TCW.
