Step Up – the Upwardly Mobile Network, is a
service to help people in low-paid jobs learn new skills and find better
work with better pay.
The scheme is for those currently in employment, but who are looking
for a new role with a better salary and greater job satisfaction. Those
that register can get help in making contact with potential new
employers, as well as access to one-to-one career support and financial
advice. In addition to these opportunities, Step Up members can also get
information on key skills training in subjects such as English, Maths
and IT, in order to better their chances of securing a new position.
To become a Step Up member, those interested should complete an
online survey, after which they’ll start receiving information about
better paid jobs in their local area, as well as details about key
skills training. Filling out the Step Up Profile Builder and Aspirations
Survey will allow members to then receive more tailored information
better suited to their individual desires and requirements.
Step Up is jointly run by Thames Reach and Clean Slate, and
funded by Trust for London and the Walcot Foundation. The service is
currently available only for people living in the London Borough of
Lambeth, though it will be expanded to cover the whole of Greater London
in the near future.
