TreloarPrint, was set up in September 2001 thanks to generous funding from the Ian Karten Charitable Trust, to provide a real working environment for students.
Since then, the enterprise has gone from strength to strength delivering 2,000 jobs per year employing former students and supporting many others into work outside Treloar’s.
TreloarPrint can provide all manner of printed products– including business cards, letterheads, compliment slips, booklets, manuals, newsletters, flyers and posters, calendars, menus, greeting cards,
postcards, invitations, leaflets, envelopes and labels. menus, invitations and more. The enterprise will also support with mail shots where appropriate and design artwork.
TreloarPrint has amassed a strong supporter base and a great reputation with many clients working with us since the begining.
“TreloarPrint have been fantastic over the years. They have created a really friendly and efficient business. Posters, invitations, stickers, leaflets, magazines and more have all been beautifully produced with speed, immense skill and thoughtfulness. They printed the service sheets for my mother’s funeral with such care and kindness and they have generated an enormous amount of goodwill throughout the local area.” Jane McNabb
TreloarPrint supporting young disabled people
As well as providing a high quality print and design service, TreloarPrint allows our students to gain work experience in a safe environment to enhance their work-based understanding, team working and problem solving. This supports our students to go on to other work experience opportunities with confidence. Where TreloarPrint continues to employ ex students of Treloar School and College, these staff act as key role models for current students.
Our students are actively engaged in a spectrum of job roles, from acting as the receptionist for TreloarPrint, taking incoming calls from customers, preparing quotes and seeing a print job through to completion and delivery. During their time at TreloarPrint students develop communication and independence skills, literacy, ICT, numeracy, and other employability, practical and social skills.
These work experience opportunities both prepare them for life beyond Treloar’s at the same time as building their confidence and self-esteem as they put the skills they have learnt at Treloar’s into practice.
Aaron Dyer, former TreloarPrint work experience student, went on to gain employment in the local area. Since then his career has blossomed and he’s now back at Treloar’s in our Administration team. He said;
As a former student It’s wonderful to see TreloarPrint still thriving 20 years later providing a wide range of services to the local community.
The ‘real world’ work experience I gained as part of the initial group of students to access the equipment provided by the Ian Karten Network prepared me to access the workplace after leaving Treloar College in 2003.
I would not have been able to return to work at Treloar’s as an Office Administrator if the IKC hadn’t been introduced in 2001.”
TreloarPrint in review
We’re thrilled to have such a loyal customer base who are helping our students to thrive.
The Team at Enterprise19 have become a wonderful partner for TreloarPrint:
“We were DELIGHTED to discover Treloar print a couple of years ago, who have taken over all of our commercial printing. We chose to work with Treloar’s simply because we wanted to support a local business, and we stayed because of the consistent quality of the products, the loveliness (and professionalism of course!) of the team and the fair pricing structure that works well for our not for profit organisation.
“It has become a wonderful partnership between our two likeminded groups. Our young adults with disabilities create and design greetings cards and as we have rapidly grown in size, Treloar’s have grown with us and have always made a huge effort to meet deadlines as well as being open to answering our (sometimes silly) questions and are able to offer us and our students quality advice, which we always really appreciate. Thanks to the whole team at Treloar’s.”
“I have enjoyed using Treloar Print for many years as they are absolutely first class in not only the quality of print but in service from both the print technicians and the students that work there. “Everyone is incredibly helpful and friendly.” Kate Davis
We can’t wait to see what the next 20 years bring, and what difference we can make to our young people and the next generation. Happy 20 years to everyone involved in TreloarPrint.
Thank you for your support, TreloarPrint look forward to working with you for the next 20 years!
