Pathways Independent Living Skills and Pre Employability Courses

Our Pathways courses are custom-made to help develop your essential skills for the future.

Pathways is made up of two parallel eight week courses of weekly group sessions. The first is focused on independent Living skills, the second is more directly focused on pre-employment skills and getting ready to enter the workplace.

You will be given the freedom to identify your own aspirations and the barriers that currently stand in your way; we'll work with you to use your shared experience to support one another on the course.

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

Pathways is made up of two parts:

  • Independent Living Skills
  • Pre-employability skills.
  • You can start at either stage depending on what support you want.
