Pathway Homes

Next Step Training

We have recently pledged a percentage of our annual profits to sponsor and support training, education and skills development to engage and positively impact tenants and support our partner organisations in the important work they do. 


Moving on from homelessness

Employment is essential for securing a life away from homelessness. We know that the majority of people experiencing homelessness want to work but face significant barriers including lack of access to training and education. However, training and education has a profoundly positive impact on someone’s personal development and later their ability to gain and maintain employment.

Pathway Homes Group, together with Next Step Training Solutions, is dedicated to giving individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness the chance to access training and educational courses which will enable them to develop their skills, achieve qualifications and secure employment. 

The Next Step Training Programme includes:

  • Confidence Building
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Literacy and Numeracy
  • IT and Digital Literacy
  • Functional Skills
  • Nutrition and Hydration
  • Personal Money Management
  • Understanding Anxiety
  • Mental Health Awareness
  • A wide range of industry-specific employability programmes
8 Housing associations

Skills Development

By incorporating skills development and employment support into their homelessness services, housing associations can significantly improve outcomes for people at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness.

The Next Step Training Programme is currently being piloted to housing associations and support providers that Pathway Homes Group has established strong working partnerships with and is accessible for both staff and their tenants.
