Celebrating Pride: #TFIMyPride

Updated: Oct 30, 2023


World Pride is upon us, and whilst we believe in supporting pride every day, the season gives us the opportunity to reflect, highlight and celebrate our incredible community.


At TFI, our community of students, staff and lecturers is at the heart of everything we do. For over 12 years, we have opened our doors to students of all walks of life, and believe that college is the perfect place for individuals to spread their wings and express their true selves.


In that vein, we asked our community to tell us what pride means to them.
