Only A Pavement Away has partnered with Mapal Group to develop a dedicated learning resource to offer their employer partners as part of their sign-up process.

The 20-minute learning resource has been custom developed by the Flow Learning solutions team at Mapal Group. A philanthropic contribution to the charity, it forms part of a new long-term partnership with Only A Pavement Away, which will also provide courses and bespoke modules to its members.

The new course is designed for hospitality employers. It was created to help employers better understand the realities of committing to the Only A Pavement Away programme and prepare them to welcome vulnerable employees into their teams.

Greg Mangham, Chief Executive of Only a Pavement Away says, "From the beginning, we have been overwhelmed by the level of enthusiasm and support from employers across hospitality. After nearly three years of helping our members find long-term, stable employment, we now recognise the pitfalls and realities involved. Some businesses can effectively deliver on their desire to help, and others need more support or time before placing candidates. The resource we have produced with the Flow Learning solutions team at MAPAL will help educate employers about the commitment they are making in the early stages and avoid surprises later.’"

James McLuckie, Chief Learning Officer at MAPAL Group, says, "The team is passionate about the work of Only A Pavement Away. The charity makes a genuine difference to the lives of those that need it most. We all feel honoured to be able to support them with this project and others in the long-term through this partnership."
