In S5, we focus on improving understanding of the different types of work with real experiences in lots of difference workplaces and building new skills.
In S6, we prepare for transition from school and work with individuals to plan their path after school. It might be training, a Modern Apprenticeship or it might be a job.
Stepping Up was developed in 2009, funded by Inspiring Scotland, and since then we have grown the service with the support of lots of other local authority partners.
We have supported over 2000 young people since then – with 98% of them moving into a meaningful positive destination after school, significantly higher than the statistics for leavers with ASN across the whole of Scotland.
More than 25% of young people on Stepping Up make a transition straight into employment from school.
