Steps Ahead Mentoring offers jobseekers one-to-one mentoring sessions to help them improve their employability skills, boost their confidence and find work.
The programme is mainly geared towards young jobseekers (aged 18-24) who are referred to Steps Ahead by Jobcentre Plus advisers, and other selected partners. To date, 73% of those who have completed the programme go on to find work or work experience – proof of the fantastic impact CIPD members can have! The programme is run by the CIPD (at no cost to the young people or Jobcentre Plus) with support from Nesta and the Cabinet Office via the Centre for Social Action Innovation Fund.
Steps Ahead Mentoring is currently operating across the whole of England with pilots in Scotland, Wales, and plans in place for a pilot in Ireland. We are also piloting the programme with other groups including older workers and parent returners to work
