For businesses

Step Up can help businesses develop a working relationship with schools.

Professionals are given the opportunity to make a difference in the local community, increase their profile and invest in their future workforce. You can do this by signing up to events posted by schools, or post details of your own events such as site visits. You can also offer work experience and apprenticeship opportunities directly to schools.
