Program in Depth

TLP Training Overview

Each Program Member’s experience begins with a two-week Springboard to Success program, designed to provide an orientation to our business as well as key skills, tools and information to prepare participants for success as they take on their first rotational role.

In addition to the Springboard event, Program participants attend semi-annual development conferences to participate in shared learning experiences and to build a broad network and strong relationships with colleagues throughout the business.

How Will I Fit into the GCT Organization?

Three, eight-month rotations in both technical and project management roles across multiple lines of business provide a strong foundation for a stellar career. Assigned coaches and mentors help facilitate both business and rotational transitions, and support active career management strategies. On-going training, both through formal classroom-based training activities and, more importantly, through critical work assignments, ensure a challenging and rewarding experience.

Where Will The TLP Rotations Be Offered ?

Within the GCT organization, four major sites have been announced. TLP Rotations will be offered in each of these four locations:

  • Dallas, Texas
  • Jacksonville, Florida
  • St. Louis, Missouri
  • Sioux Falls, South Dakota
