PATHS Vocational Training Program Empowers Gibraltarians

The right education and training can equip a worker for continued professional success. Without access to that kind of training, though, unemployed workers face barriers to pulling themselves out of a poor financial situation. Those skills are the key to creating a whole new existence.

The Barzilai Foundation is supporting His Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar on the launch of PATHS, a program designed to provide upskilling to individuals seeking to improve their employment prospects. PATHS (Professional Advancement through Holistic Skills) creates opportunities and access for individuals who are willing to work for a better future.

The program will provide education and training, increasing employability through upskilling, in fields that have openings in the local employment market, such as retail and construction. PATHS participants will have access to professional certification courses, receiving support from the program to complete and obtain those certifications that qualify them for job opportunities in the community.

“PATHS is going to make meaningful differences in the lives of people who are ready to work hard to change their situation,” said Brandon Sosa, CEO of the Barzilai Foundation. “We’re eager to see that hard work turn into results, both for the program and for these individuals are putting in the effort to improve their lives.”

Minister for Employment, The Honorable Christian Santos GMD MP said “We are very pleased The Barzilai Foundation has come on board with PATHS. This initiative is about supporting people and giving them the tools to progress, develop and grow.”
