Pathways Training

Welcome to Pathways Training

Pathways Training is the work-based learning department of NPTC Group of Colleges, and is one of eight training providers that form Skills Academy Wales. We work with our partner organisations to provide a broad range of industry-recognised qualifications across Mid and South-West Wales.

Pathways Training works with employers to provide ESF-funded workplace training opportunities so that learners can gain industry-recognised qualifications whilst gaining valuable experience in the workplace. Learners earn a wage whilst also benefiting from gaining job specific skills through working with experienced staff; they also receive additional support from our staff to achieve their qualifications.

Employers can also benefit from off-the-job training to equip employees with the knowledge and accreditation specific to the industry which can result in increased productivity. Pathways Training will also support employers with recruitment.

Various training opportunities are available depending on prior experience:

  • Traineeship Engagement
  • Work-Ready Programme
  • Foundation Apprenticeship
  • Apprenticeship
  • Higher Apprenticeship
  • Bespoke Training.

The Apprenticeship and Traineeship Programmes, led by the Welsh Government, are supported by the European Social Fund.
