Steps Project

The Steps Project is funded by the Department for Communities (formerly Department Social Development (DSD)) Neighbourhood Renewal. Its aim is to enhance the transferrable skills, educational attainment, employment opportunities and volunteering for women from the Kilcooley Neighbourhood Renewal Area. Volunteering has been key to KWC as it was formed on the principles of volunteering in 1995.  The project offers a wide range of training opportunities catering for those with no formal qualifications through to those who may need to re-skill following job redundancy.  Courses include Literacy and Numeracy, GCSE Maths and English, Sociology, Psychology, IT courses for beginners through to Word processing and ECDL.  Leisure courses include crafts, Sewing Bee and languages for beginners so there is something to suit everyone
