The TSX system includes...

Can I group together cohorts of different experience levels?

While TSX is suitable for all early careers audiences, we would recommend grouping cohorts of similar experience levels on one shared journey – e.g. one cohort of apprentices, or one cohort of graduates. This will ensure their peer-to-peer discussions and networking opportunities are of optimal relevance and value for their development.

What is the typical length of TSX?

TSX was designed with modularity in mind to ensure ease of adaptability and speed of adoption in a variety of contexts. The recommended length to ensure maximum impact of TSX components is 12-24 months. However, additional content is available for extension up to 36 months if necessary for your requirements.

Is TSX only offered as a full package, or can I choose certain elements?

While TSX offers flexible components like skills sessions, it has been carefully designed as a complete end-to-end solution. If you are only interested in particular components of TSX rather than the full system, our team would be happy to talk through other available solutions to meet your needs.

Can TSX be delivered globally?

Our global network of professional facilitators ensures TSX can be delivered worldwide to a high standard. This could mean delivering via a hub format, with selected locations worldwide, or a more localised approach. Please note that TSX is currently costed based on roll-out in the UK, so pricing may be adjusted to reflect the scale and geographies required to meet your needs.

What’s the ideal cohort size for TSX?

TSX works for any size, but we would recommend a cohort size of no larger than 50 participants. If your intake is larger than this, we can break up your participants into multiple cohorts. Please note: Example pricing is provided for a cohort of 50, assuming one delivery of each of the F2F programme components (e.g. 1 Induction, 1 Mid-Point etc.) Please talk to us to confirm exact costings based on your intake needs.

Can line managers use TSX?

TSX has been specifically designed to resonate with early careers audiences. However, for managers looking to support their teams, we can offer targeted add-on sessions through our newly launched manager programme, The Expedition. We’ll help you choose which Expedition sessions will maximise its impact on both your line managers and their teams.
