Hi, how can we help you?

We have successfully delivered bespoke training packages to unemployed customers since 2019 with a 50% success rate of customers gaining employment. We aim to transcend this knowledge and experience into delivering innovative employability training with the use of augmented reality and virtual reality formats. 100% of our customers have gained either a Digital Skills or Work Preparation qualification.

We have experience with working with 15-19-year-old students and have plans to work with schools and colleges including other educational institutions.

In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have provided WiFi-enabled laptops and tablets to digitally excluded individuals in the community and our learners to enable them to maintain social contact with friends and family, complete online training and job seeking. This has been a service on a no-cost basis as we understand the impact of social isolation and loneliness.

Our Story

Pathways to Work Limited was established in 2018 after identifying a gap in training provision to provide bespoke services to DWP customers in Merseyside. We decided to deconstruct the “traditional” one-size-fits all approach to training and offer innovative, pick and mix courses. Since this time, we have constantly reviewed and revised our service provision to help us move in these rapidly changing times. We work collaboratively and closely with all of our partners to ensure that our service is constantly meeting the needs and demands of our customers. We are very proud that we can now offer a suite of qualifications across a broad curriculum spectrum, many of which are now on a completely remote platform.

Our future vision is to continue to combat digital exclusion and to build our relationships with our partner agencies to reach out to wider communities and individuals across Merseyside, Cheshire and the UK.

Our exciting VR offering will further enhance our services and we look forward to working with individual customers, employers and recruitment agencies to support more people into work with increased confidence pre-employment and in interview.
