Engage - Our aim is to engage with young people and assist them in deciding if the programme is right for them and supports their own aims and
Train - help young people understand the rules of the workplace and develop good routines that will assist them to make the most of their
placement opportunity
Qualify - Support young people to gain the Steps To Work award
Employ - Support young people to move into and sustain employment
As Stage 2 is specifically targeted at young people facing a lower level of core skills or external barriers to employment, we have tailored our
provision to offer a longer 4 week period of in-house training.
Undertake Steps To work - over the induction period we will work with the young person on their personal development and their knowledge and
understanding of the workplace. The work will include discussion and advice in relation the what employers look for when recruiting and training
new staff
They will undertake a voluntary placement, part time, gaining work place experience. They will continue with group sessions, work towards
completion of their portfolios and receive on-going support as 1:1 and sessions relating to reflective practice
This stage is important for building a positive support relationship between a Project Worker and a young person, and identifying peer support
networks, which will continue throughout Work Experience. Young people will be supported to get into a healthy routine that prepares them for
sustainable employment through considering factors such as timekeeping, attendance, budgeting and concentration.
Support to progress to EF Stage 3 provision, or progression to FE, employment or MA
Steps To Work
We will whenever possible be as flexible as we can in order to enable full access to our programmes to young people in our area and will consider
all referral on an individual basis to ensure we can meet their support needs. We will when appropriate make application for support to
accommodate any additional support need the young person may have.
