Next Steps is an online resource which prepares young adults (S4, S5 and S6) for life beyond school, providing them with the skills and knowledge needed to gain employment. 

The resource is split into 4 sessions which could be used by pupils directly or for 4 teacher led lessons. 

The content is a mixture of videos, discussion questions and quizzes.
