Pathways Programme

Our Pathway Programmes combine practical experiences with personal development support to stimulate the capacity for young people to ’learn through doing’.

Programme Overview

The Pathways to Enterprise Programme is a 10-week enterprise course for young people aged 12-21 who have experienced barriers to accessing formal education.

The programme is flexible to allow 1,2 and 3 days per week for the duration of the course and can be adapted to meet the needs of the school and its participants.

Our ethos is ’learn through doing’ and by combining practical experiences with personal development we aim to give each learner the opportunity to fulfil their potential and recognise their abilities whilst building confidence and self-esteem.

Designed to aid young people’s transition from education to their next positive destination into employment, training, or further education Pathways uses Enterprise as the driver to promote skills development.
