Pathway Group working with Schools
With the Connexions service no longer offering any real service in many regions, and with schools themselves taking a lead role in the provision of careers advice or IAG -Information, Advice and Guidance.
Pathway Group have seen this as an opportunity to work with schools by training the school staff with the appropriate advice and guidance qualifications
so that they right level of expertise in-house.
In addition we are also supporting schools with our staff providing training in areas such as teaching and learning including specialist areas such asDiploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning in Schools Level 3
and alsoSupporting Teaching and Learning in Schools Level 2
Pathway Group is investing considerable resources in establishing and developing links with local schools to also promote apprenticeships with final year pupils to ensure that its Apprenticeship reach can extend to as many young people as possible and wherever suitable.
Our Staff offer their services to local schools so that pupils and teaching staff alike have someone to turn to for professional guidance about what our Apprenticeships involve. Whether this be through attending careers evenings, holding group sessions, or helping with interview skills workshops, our advisers try to ensure that pupils are both informed and prepared should they choose an Apprenticeship as their path to future progression.
Our work with schools is focused on the provision of clear and honest information to the pupils. Helping them decide where to turn after their school education comes to an end is a responsibility that a school has as part of their responsibilities to their pupils and other stakeholders. We hope to compliment this by making our Apprenticeship information available and accessible in consultation and in partnership with the schools.
Today's pupils do face a number of challenges, but behind every challenge is an opportunity and an Apprenticeship is certainly one of them. Clearly not all pupils will choose to find work or attain a qualification through an Apprenticeship, but for those that are keen to forge their own way in life and secure their first step on what is currently a crowded career ladder, work based learning can be an ideal solution.
Pathway Group is able to help in this respect our staff can provide the initial information that allows a young person to decide for themselves whether an Apprenticeship is the right path for them.
