The Pathfinder Programmes – Employment Support for all


Thriiver have developed the Pathfinder Programmes from the ground up, focusing on supporting individuals to re-gain that all important confidence in their own skills & abilities and show them how to open up opportunities by focusing their talents towards a career or progression within their employment.

Underpinning each of the Pathfinder programmes is the ‘Distance Travelled’ progress tracker, this enables us to demonstrate the impact Pathfinder has had on each participants employability and health and is completed at key stages in the Pathfinder programme.

The Pathfinder Programmes are for everyone and are not designed to replace, or become an alternative to counselling or therapy.

 

Who we can help

Our Employment programmes are open to everyone. We help people overcome barriers and develop their professional and life skills to secure sustained employment or develop within their current role. We adapt and tailor programmes to ensure each person who enrols has a rewarding experience by increasing their basic key skills and confidence.

“It has been a great experience working with Thriiver on their Pathfinder Neurodiversity Programme. I referred one of my participants who is autistic, and he has told me that he now feels more confident, less isolated and has learnt tools to enable him to gain and sustain employment. 

I will definitely be looking to refer more neurodiverse participants to this course in the future.”
