Offering alternative opportunities for gaining recognised qualifications.

Key Steps is a comprehensive programme of activities in a range of topic areas covering Citizenship, PSHE, Environment Education, Personal Finance Education, Enterprise, and Internationalism. The flexibility and range of Key Steps means that it can be followed in less than one year.

The activities are aimed at the 10–15 age group and can be used in schools and alternative education. They are presented in the form of personal challenges and encourage students to develop their personal skills and take responsibility for their own learning.

Learners complete challenges and collate the work they produce in their student books and recording documents.

Students must complete 30 hours of challenges to achieve each certificate. Students may achieve up to three certificates.

Challenges can be selected from any of the nine modules:

  • Identity
  • Community
  • Health
  • Citizenship
  • Environment
  • Personal Finance
