Why focus on adults retraining?

We make it our business to continually improve Pathways to be more relavant and useful for colleges.

Normally this might mean adding new features or including different types of data, however with so many people now without jobs as a result of the pandemic, coupled also with the government's announcement regarding the Lifetime Skills Guarantee for adults, we decided to focus on how we could help adults who are looking for a new start.

So the aim of Pathways Retrain is to help adults to find potential jobs they might be interested in - all based around the skills that they have gained through their current or previous employment. These jobs are mapped to courses that can be taken at your college, allowing them to see how they can retrain and therefore allow access to that new job.
