Workshops and activities

The GTP Fusion learning approach combines formal learning (core activities) with fun real-life experiences (optional activities).

To complete each stage, students choose three activities (at least one of them core) from the 100+ options under the GTP portfolio.

Core Activities

The GTP Core activities provide the framework and rationale for the skills we develop through GTP. You can choose between playing digital games and attending core workshops delivered in collaboration with lead academics and industry practitioners.

Book your space to experience real-life challenges and gain insiders’ information from a variety of sectors and career paths.
