Pathways to Employment Programme
Pathways to Employment Programme is an initiative delivered in partnership with Liverpool City Council and designed to support young people who are at risk of falling into the NEET (not in education, employment, or training) category once they leave school. This could be due to a range of barriers such as being from a low-income household, disability, learning disability/difficulty, bereavement, trafficking, drugs & alcohol misuse, mental health or physical health issues, lack of positive role models at home and school disengagement. The programme provides a range of services and support to help individuals overcome barriers to employment by establishing and creating a pathway to employment whilst recording progression throughout the programme with the use of person-centred assessment tools.
Our key outcomes areas:
Making a difference
Hopes and Dreams
Education and Work

How we do it
The Pathways to Employment Programme offers a tailored approach to support each individual, with the aim of improving their outcome across all phases of their leaning journey. We utilise the existing careers strategies already in place in schools to strengthen employer links, expose the young people on the programme to employers from a wide range of sectors, allow the students to explore careers with professionals and to establish the correct routeway for them into future work.
Meet the professional sessions
We bring in a number of business professionals into each school from different industries to discuss their own career, opportunities within the sector and the range of roles available within their industry. There is also a chance for a questions and answers session.
Have a go events
Businesses offer their time to attend schools with job related equipment to allow students to “have a go”. These sessions are hands on and promote real engagement amongst the groups.
Students have the opportunity to see what the world of work looks like first hand as they visit a range of business sector sites enhancing their further understanding of the workplace.
We offer support to gain work experience and job placements once the programme is complete
Participants have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience and build their networks through job placements, internships, and volunteering opportunities with a business from within our network.
How businesses can get involved
Your business can get involved in this important programme in a number of ways. Whether it be offering to be a job coach, volunteering time or space, or by hosting a work placement.
