STEPS (Soft Skills Training Enabling Progression and Sustainability), was developed in response to the INTERREG IVA 2 Seas Thematic Cluster initiative. The rationale behind this initiative is to pool together experiences and expertise from partners working on projects on a similar theme, that have already been realised under the 2 Seas programme.
All partners under the programme have previously been involved in the SUCCES, iLAEBOR and Crysalis projects. Medway Council, Mentor, OCMW Kortrijk, Maison de l’initative de Grande Synthe and Community Connections all contributed to the successful delivery of the SUCCES project. Syntra West, Scalda and PRO WORK were active partners in the iLAEBOR project and Plymouth College of Art under Chrysalis. Detailed information on each partner and project can be found under the Project and Partner tabs on our website.
All three of these projects complement each other in terms of successfully using of soft skills training as a key mechanism to enable beneficiaries to develop personal and employability skills necessary to access the labour market, education, volunteering and self-employment.
