This week NTU Employability were delighted to learn that a number of our students have been named as published authors in the second edition of TG Consulting’s book, The Truth Behind the Filter. The book provides a platform for under-represented young people to share their experiences and barriers they have overcome. Themes include toxic masculinity, disability, mental health, social mobility, LGBTQ+, racism, imposter syndrome and bereavement.

Supporting students from all backgrounds

We are proud to work with an abundance of organisations who share our passion for increasing social mobility and supporting students from all backgrounds to achieve their goals. Launching early Springtime, the Rise Insight Programme will be the latest way NTU Employability are providing local SME organisations with a platform to showcase their business to the next generation of diverse talent.

By offering employers the chance to host an Insight Day, the programme aims to:

  • Expose students to a range of industries they may not have considered, raising their commercial awareness and career aspirations
  • Highlight the breadth of career opportunities within local SMEs – recognised as the largest recruiter of graduates
  • Allow employers to inspire students about their organisation, building a future talent pipeline for placement and graduate roles
