Our Courses

As a leading agency working with rape, sexual abuse and trauma, New Pathways has developed a range of courses aimed at supporting professionals who may work with people affected by these issues. Our training focuses on courses aimed at specialists in the sexual violence and domestic abuse sector and at people working in related fields including health, social care, criminal justice, education and youth work. Many of our courses relate specifically to sexual violence whilst others focus more on issues, such as self harm and anger, which may affect this client group. In addition to the courses listed, New Pathways is able to design and deliver bespoke courses for organisations tailored specifically to their requirements.

National Occupational Standards

National Occupational Standards (NOS) describe what an individual needs to do, know and understand in order to carry out a particular job role or function. Our courses have been mapped to National Occupational Standards including Health and Social Care, Drug and Alcohol, and Preventing and Tackling Domestic and Sexual Abuse and Violence. New Pathways courses have the relevant NOS listed within the course outline to assist learners in identifying the benefits to their professional development and to help with selecting the most appropriate course.
