Onto Next Steps

Onto Next Steps enhances learners employability through character development and practical application of learning. The programme is set up to help learners progress into Further Education, Training or Employment, especially targeting those who have the potential to become NEET. During the Onto Next Steps programme the self-confidence of the learners increases and they develop key skills valued by employers such as team-working, problem solving and leadership. Learners also develop the ability to understand, reflect upon and articulate their own skills and qualities in order to be able to present themselves positively at significant transition points. There are three key outcomes: improved attendance, and attitude which leads to increased attainment. Onto Next Steps usually runs for a full academic year for at least one full day per week; we also offer shorter programmes. Onto Next Steps lessons happen in school time and on school premises (with regular visits out of school for community and outdoors projects). Most include an overnight expedition activity and an opportunity to participate in the SkillForce Prince's Award.
