Pathways is a custom-made training course to develop essential skills and provide peer support.

Pathways is made up of two parallel eight week courses of weekly group sessions. The first is focussed on independent living skills, the second is more directly focussed on pre-employment skills and getting ready to enter the workplace. Clients are given the freedom to identify their own needs, aspirations and the barriers that currently stand in their way, and are encouraged to use their shared experience to support one another.

Pathways is funded with the support of the Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales.

Pathways is made up of three parts:

  • Independent Living Skills
  • Sessions dedicated to employability skills
  • Meaningful short term work placements and on-going job search support from Breakthrough. You can start at either stage depending on what support you want.
