Our awards from external agencies, for our commitment towards our staff, are testament to this; as well as our ‘Grade 2’accreditation in Leadership and Management, from Ofsted.
Our most valued critics are our employees, and we regularly seek feedback from them to maintain a comfortable and productive working environment.
As important as it is for our team members to continuously learn and develop, we also encourage them to have a self-fulfilling and well-balanced career.
Training & Development
Matrix 2016 – “Much emphasis is placed on developing staff within the organisation”
Put simply, Pathway Group’s growing success is down to the talent, dedication, and resilience of our team members. We believe that our people are our brand; and ultimately, our most valuable asset. This is why we work hard to ensure that they have ample support, training, and progression opportunities, to be the best they can be.
We have created a distinctive ‘work culture’, that is proactively supportive of employee well-being and career development.
In working with us, our staff can take advantage of both internal and external training opportunities, and gain accredited qualifications and experience.
In a nutshell, they’re able to change their career path if they want to, without having to change their employer.
In the year 2016, aside from our internal training, we had:
- 5 staff members studying towards Management Qualifications between Levels 5 -7.
- 6 staff members studying towards a Level 5 Teaching Qualification
- 2 staff members studying towards Level 3 Assessing Qualifications
In addition to this, some of our staff members have been studying to gain qualifications in IAG, Team Leading and Customer Service, Business Administration, First Aid, and Fire Safety.
Training & Development
“Team members who have recently joined Pathway Group, described how they were introduced to the organisation, our policies and procedures, and their specific job roles.
Mentioning both the professional backing and support from colleagues and team leaders, they explained it as being a ‘supportive process’, which helped them become proficient in their role.” – Investors in People 2016
At the risk of seeming biased, we believe the members of #TeamPathway are the best.
As well as being well-trained and knowledgeable in their respective job roles, they have each proved that they are passionate, dedicated, and the ‘right fit’, during the recruitment process. This ensures that they are happy to take on new responsibilities, and above all- can provide a warm and supportive welcome to new members of staff.
Our employees are known to say that they feel like they’re part of the ‘Pathway Family’; and this is exactly the culture we are proud of. All our managers have an open-door policy and we regularly host company wide events each quarter, to bring the entire team together over good food, company updates, and staff awards.
