Getting you back into work
Are you finding it hard to get back into the work place? Are you lacking a few key skills that employers always seem to be looking for? Help is at hand. Westward Pathfinder is a charity that has been delivering successful training for work across the south west since 1999. We offer a wide range of support and training, often in partnership with government institutions such as Job Centre Plus and the Department for Work and Pensions.
Train your staff to grow your business
An engaged workforce is a profitable workforce. Training is a great way to motivate your staff and workers feel valued when you invest in them. We can help you to address the needs of a developing workforce through a range of professional training and support that will take your business to the next level. From work place learning projects, to traineeships, apprenticeships to tailored courses in areas such as management, accounting, customer services and IT skills, our courses and options will help you build a stronger workforce for a brighter future.
Training for success
Whether you are in work and looking to improve your skills, or are unemployed and looking to get back into work by improving your skills and enhancing your career prospects, Westward Pathfinder has a range of programmes and courses to help you.
"I have found Westward Pathfinder a welcoming and encouraging environment to learn in. The staff have always been helpful, co-operative and not at all patronising. I have seen them help, encourage and support patrons who were experiencing difficulties with patience, humour and empathy" - Westward Pathfinder Learner
