Step Forward Apprenticeships

About Us:
Step Forward is a one-year programme for London school leavers run by The Challenge Network, the UK's leading charity for building a more connected society.

Through Step Forward, we help young people build networks by connecting them directly with employers and equipping them with the skills they need to make smart decisions, easing the transition from school or college to whatever comes next.

Employers find it increasingly difficult to reach the young people they need while many school leavers lack the networks to help them hear about jobs. With up to 40% of all jobs filled by word of mouth, it's not just what you know, but who you know.

Step Forward Associates get a paid job for 12 months along with one day a week of free professional development training, support from a fully trained mentor, and friends and connections made for life.
