The main aim of this project was to develop a common European framework of competences for mentors and support workers in the non formal and informal learning sector (NFLS) in the creative industries, with a particular emphasis on how young disadvantaged people from the target group can progress (‘STEP’ up) to become mentors and support workers in the sector themselves.
STEP operated in the creative industries, including music, drama, visual arts, media production and design. The partner organisations utilised informal learning, delivered through artistic and cultural expression, to provide vocational support to disadvantaged and disaffected young people.
