The Footsteps programme is centred around offering students the chance to reach their maximum potential, whatever their ability. In order to achieve this, Footsteps adds value to the course in a number of ways that provide extra support and guidance and all Footsteps students are supported until they access employment, training or further education.

Students are encouraged to provide regular feedback about the course so that Footsteps can maintain a cycle of continuous improvement. This process also gives clients a sense of attachment. Footsteps provides weekly reports of attendance, performance and progression to referring agencies and parents/carers.
