Employee Benefits


Staff Dinners

Discounted Meals

Staff meals are prepared by our fully-qualified chefs, all of whom have many years of experience in the catering industry.

When ordered before the previous Thursday, each specials menu meal is £3 with an additional cost of 25p for fresh bread. If ordered after that deadline, each meal is £4 and bread and butter is 40p. Bistro Menu meals are priced separately via the printed menu.


Cycle scheme

TCAT will review your application and pay for your Cyclescheme package. Cyclescheme will then send you an eCertificate. You can exchange your eCertificate for your gear in-store or online.

When your Hire Agreement and salary sacrifice ends, you can keep your Cyclescheme package by making a small additional payment. Participants on standard schemes tend to save between 25-39% when they use our recommended ownership option.

Simple Health

Medical Cover

You can claim money back from visits to opticians, dentists, GPs, chiropidists and chiropractors. Plus a whole range of health benefits from Simplyhealth including:

  • Speak to a GP 24/7
  • Advice & counselling
  • Video physiotherapy Assessments
  • Online health resources
  • Health treatment service
  • Offers & discounts

Peninsula Pensions

The Local Government Pension Scheme is a valuable part of the pay and reward package for employees working in local government or for one of the other employers participating in the scheme.

The LGPS is a career average revalued earnings (CARE) scheme, which means your benefits are based on your salary for each year you are in the scheme and each year it is revalued in line with Pensions Act increases.


Holiday Club Discount

As a staff member, you will be able to receive a significant discount for your child to attend the TCAT Holiday Club.

You will receive a 75% discount for your child to attend the Holiday Club if you are working on that day. This means, your child will be able to attend the club for £4.50 per session (£9 per day).

If you are not working, but would still like your child to attend, you will receive a 50% discount. This means, you will be able to send your child to Holiday Club for £9 per session (£18 per day).


Other Benefits

TCAT also provides you with:

  • Discounts in the school coffee shops
  • Unlimited free tea & coffee throughout the day
  • Staff uniform & clothing relevant to your role
