First and Next Steps

First and Next Steps sessions are run through a mix of 1:1 and group work. Sessions are accredited through the AQA unit award scheme, so young people achieve a nationally recognised certificate that they can add to a CV.

First Steps sessions cover life skills and personal development. Young people work on self-esteem and confidence, money management, sexual health and relationships, personal health, and healthy eating.

Next Steps sessions explore items including team building, developing communication skills, other cultures, and volunteering opportunities.

First and Next Steps sessions are run for young people living in Step by Step shared accommodation. We expect young people to either be in education, or employment, or taking part in our training programme.
