The Pathfinder Programme


Hands Free Computing 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. We show jobseekers how to open up opportunities by focusing their talents towards finding sustainable employment, and a career.

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 Pre-Employment programmes are open to many individuals. We are specialists in supporting people with disabilities and neurodiversities and utilise all of our years of experience in adapting and tailoring our programmes to ensure each person who enrols, has a rewarding experience.
