First and Next Steps

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

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

In Next Steps sessions you’ll explore items including team building, developing communication skills, exploring other cultures, and take part in volunteering opportunities.

When you’re living in Step by Step shared accommodation, we expect that you will either be in education, working, or you’ll be taking part in our training programme.

There will be a training timetable in your accommodation and your Training and Development Worker is on hand to work with you in both 1:1 and group sessions.

First and Next Steps sessions happen in all of the Foyers.
