Pathways - Version 1's Professional Development Model

"With you on your journey."

Our Pathways professional development model centres on driving enhanced customer service through the career growth of our staff.

Pathways is the Version 1 career development framework, empowering and supporting our people in building the skills and knowledge they need to grow their career and deliver great service to our customers. Pathways makes it easy to assess where your skill gaps are and understand how to fill them through learning and experience, both on the job and through training and development.

Development that is continuous, planned and encouraged.

The Version 1 approach to the development of our people is based around the acquisition of skill, knowledge and experiences of our staff to drive both their own careers and our ability to respond to the broader service needs of our customers. Continuous learning is provided through our internal Pathways platform, where formal learning via courses, certifications and classes is available for all staff via and a range of accessible learning content.

Our quarterly rhythm imposes a monthly and quarterly review of developmental progress and all staff are encouraged to drive their own activities through adopting a ‘bitesized’ continuous learning approach, supported by a variety of mechanisms – not just buddy and mentor support but also through study and exam leave, relevant peer groups and access to relevant platforms and content sources to assist in filling knowledge gaps.

“Pathways is an award-winning professional development model, enabling and supporting employees to develop the skills and knowledge they need to grow their careers and deliver customer success.”
- Mary O'Connell, Project Manager - Pathways
