The Pathfinder Experience
Category: Vocational | Wellbeing
Duration: Inspire 6 Days, followed by optional Enable (5 days) and Support (2 days), spread over approx. 6 months
What is it?
Loss of military identity can be a difficult time for you. Our Pathfinder Experience provides you with the tools, support and time you need to successfully transition into your new life as a civilian. You are matched with a civilian mentor who acts as a sounding board and ‘civilian knowledge’ guide for you during the next 12 months. Mentors may also assist with professional contacts and work placements.
The Pathfinder Experience is based on an environment of openness, positivity, mutual support and individual empowerment.
Who is it for?
Wounded, injured and sick veterans.
Why is it offered?
Learn more about yourself in terms of strengths, skills, likes, dislikes, as well as identify opportunities that exist for the future, whether that be in fulfilling paid work, voluntary work or finding enjoyable hobbies.
Throughout the course you will develop an awareness of what you can do rather than what you can’t, and are armed with a number of tools and techniques to help you take personal responsibility and plan for a more fulfilling future.
By the time the experience is complete, you should be in a position to translate you new-found skills into civilian life, understand employment options and be confident about what the future holds.
