Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones is a linked programme of courses designed to help build your understanding and knowledge and allow you to work or start working as a volunteer/support worker, or use this knowledge within an organisation. Students should start off with the Group One introductory courses, then once they have completed most or all of these, progress on to the Group Two courses

Stepping Stones courses are taught at Level 2, so you would need to be ready and able to work at this level. Ideally you should already have some experience in a volunteering or support role and be looking to progress into this area of work. You would also benefit from having previously undertaken some of the courses in the Personal and Social Development area. Please note: all Stepping Stones courses start at 4pm (arrive at 3pm). Please be aware that these are not therapy courses.

How much does it cost?

These courses are FREE of charge if you are claiming certain means-tested benefits, for more details go to our fee information page.
