Our vision is for a fair and inclusive world where equal opportunities exist for individuals, families and communities.


Inspiring potential since 2001

We began our journey in 2001 in the east end of Glasgow with our founder John Gibson aiming to create opportunity for young people who had disengaged with education and were facing social and personal barriers to accessing employment. John combined his financial sector experience with his belief that everyone has a talent, to create tigers – an organisation that’s commercially sustainable and people-centred.

Over the years the name tigers – standing for Training Initiatives Generating Effective Results Scotland – has become synonymous with relationships, collaborations and a holistic approach to development and growth. What started as a team of 2 has grown to a team of almost 100, all sharing the same vision!


Proudly working the tigers way

We believe in Relationship Led Practice, understanding that significant learning and development only happens in the presence of secure, positive relationships.

We promote and support our team’s whole wellbeing so we can learn, develop and grow, with shared values leading us towards the same vision.

Our culture is reflected and echoed in our relationships with young people, our partners and all our brands.


At the heart of all we do


We are always leading and growing from a place of curiosity.


We act with integrity through leadership, decision-making and policies.


We always choose courage over comfort.


We embrace love and compassion through connection.


Believing in values based recruitment

We believe everyone can be a leader! We hire people based on their attitude and values rather than experience or qualifications, fostering every single person’s capacity to develop their potential. Together we unleash tremendous energy towards our shared vision.
