7-step civilian skills program

THE 7-STEP CIVILIAN SKILLS PROGRAM TO IMPROVE MENTAL HEALTH AND TO GIVE YOU THE CONFIDENCE TO RETURN TO EDUCATION OR EMPLOYMENT.

This project is funded by the European Social Funding Community grants through Worcestershire County Council.

The European Social Fund helps local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support skills development, employment and job creation, social inclusion and local community regeneration.

The 7-Step Civilian Skills program is here to improve your mental health before entering employment or further education.

  • Are you presently unemployed?
  • Are you suffering with your mental health?
  • Do you have a physical disability?
  • Would you like to learn new skills in civilian life which can lead to employment opportunities?
  • Are you looking for a sense of BELONGING AND PURPOSE?

Answered yes to one or more of these questions? The FREE: 7-Step Civilian skills program is for you!

FUN FACTS BEHIND THE PROGRAMS* NAME

a) When leaving the army, it is 7 clicks to freedom, 7 clicks on the computer mouse to end your army career. Therefore, the natural order of things was the next stage to be the 7 steps, the Survival kit for Civvy street which leads to Freedom, control and empowerment.

b) When you joined the armed forces, you may be trained to become a soldier but not retrained to become a civilian. This happens often if your armed forces career is cut short through medical discharge or to early service leavers (4 years or less). We have people in their 60’s 70’s still struggling with this aspect of life. We need to reprogram?

c) Decades ago, program appeared in both American and British writing. In the nineteenth century we started to favour the French way of spelling it—programme. However, Program can also function as a verb. It means to reset, regulate to produce a specific result. Hence, the 7-step civilian Skills PROGRAM is exactly that, to retrain, to re-program to make adaption less problematic and in turn, improve mental wellbeing. Therefore, next time when someone asks why STEPWAY? Why the misspelt ‘program’ in the title, you have the answer.
