Office Grand Opening: Burslem


As announced to our community and supporters on social media, we are very thrilled that Pathway Group has finally opened our doors to the town of Burslem in the Staffordshire area! The Burslem Academy will be headed by Rachel Wild, we currently have a team of 12.

Pathway Group celebrated the grand opening of our new office on Thursday, 10th of October 2019.

The office was officially opened by Ruth Smeeth Labour MP for Stoke-on-Trent North & Kidsgrove and Carol Shanahan of Port Vale FC

With Ruth Smeeth saying “ I want to say goodluck you are all definitely on the sides of the angels and there is work to be done you know there’s work to be done, you are in the mother town of the potteries, the centre of the Midlands. There are people here who genuinely need a little support but they are the best people in the country they just need your help. So thank you, good luck and welcome!”

It is our role to ‘Upskill and Re-Skill’ by being able to offer education and training opportunities for those unemployed or looking to up skill themselves through different routes of qualifications and functional skills, such as courses in care, nail and beauty, railway engineering and leadership and management we aim to increase the employability of our learners. 

However, it’s not just the skills they would have gained but also confidence in themselves. Don’t just hear it from us hear it from our own past learners where we have changed lives through skills and work. 


Thank you to all who attended and supported us. Our doors are officially open for any business opportunities and/or partnerships, give our Burslem team a call for a coffee and chat on how we can help you!
