Fresh Steps – for a new age and a new stage

Returning to work or reassessing the future

Returners & experienced workers can help refocus for the next phase of their working and personal life. It is a way for organisations to attract workers returning to work from maternity, paternity or long-term sick leave.  It can also be a tool for people who are re-evaluating their career direction or their life priorities. Employers can also use it as part of any redundancy package.

Most of us who have been in work for some years find ourselves living with the consequences of decisions we may have made many years ago. However, our circumstances many now have changed and our work and personal goals may need to change as well.

Fresh Steps is an innovative personal and work development course which enables people to review their professional progress, reassess their priorities and direction and to set and achieve new personal and work goals.

Who is it designed for ?
Fresh Steps is for anyone at work who wants to reassess where they are in their lives and work, review their priorities, explore new possibilities and set new goals.

For employers who understand the trends in demographics, legislation and employment, and who want to access the untapped potential and intellectual capital in their staff. Fresh Steps can provide employers with support for returners, staff changing career direction or re-motivation as well as redundancy provision.

What does the programme consist of?
Delivered over six weeks, Fresh Steps consists of five simple, yet powerful, parts:

  • a two-day workshop followed by a one-day workshop
  • a wide-ranging information gathering project, in between the workshops, specifically tailored to each individual’s requirements
  • a comprehensive, useful and well-produced folder of course materials
  • an especially recorded MP3 of downloadable materials
  • peer group support and networking

The Programme covers:

  • successfully dealing with change
  • identifying what you want from work
  • mentoring/coaching
  • reassessing changing values
  • inter-generational working
  • setting goals
  • your health issues
  • the importance of exercise and relaxation
  • recognising success
  • relationships with other people
  • clearing whatever is holding you back
  • gathering information
  • relaunching yourself
  • presenting your experience positively
  • turning your goals into reality


What can I expect to gain from the programme?

Results from the programme vary from person to person as everyone sets their own aims and objectives. Some people concentrate on moving onwards in their careers, whilst others prefer to focus on their quality of life outside work. Most have their own unique blend of both personal and work objectives.

Participants walk away from Fresh Steps with a new spring in their step, open to new challenges and with a renewed sense of optimism and purpose.

Employers are delighted with participants’ renewed enthusiasm and engagement in their work, coupled with a ‘can do’ attitude to life.

What our clients say…

“A refreshing change to concentrate on yourself. A chance to be ‘selfish’ in the nicest possible way. To take stock of your life, to feel refreshed and ready to go. A practical guide to ‘me and my future’.”


Tracey Finn, Police Constable Management support, Lancashire Constabulary

“I’d like to say how much I enjoyed doing the Fresh Steps workshops. I found some of the exercises challenging, but in a very positive way – and the workshops generally were very self-affirming and excellent for raising confidence and expectations in personal as well as work areas. I found all of the workshops both stimulating and enjoyable and I know this sentiment was shared by a number of other participants that I spoke to. I hope you continue to deliver and extend this important learning and development opportunity to as many people as possible and feel sure I will continue to benefit from my experience for a long time to come.”


Jeff Marsh, Learning and Development Officer, London Borough of Wandsworth
