News! I-Step Up Scheme

Young people who were unsure what to do after leaving school this summer are now looking forward to the future after taking part in our 'I-Step Up' employability project.

Fourteen young people from Bolsover and North East Derbyshire took part in the 4 week intensice programme we delivered with Derbyshire Education Business partnership in July and August 2016.

Each young person took part in team building, problem solving, presentations and interviews and obtained a recognised qualification.

They also completed a CV and were given the opportunity to practice their new skills in front of a range of local employers through work experience and interview practice.

This years programme has led to all the participants going on to pursue further education, training or emplyment opportunities this Autumn.

Two further I-Step up programmes are planned to take place in Derbyshire over the coming year for young people in Amber Valley and High Peak.
