Step Up Pilot key findings and reports

Trust for London, the Walcot Foundation and Learning and Work Institute (L&W) collaborated to design a pilot initiative, Step Up, trialling new approaches to help low-paid workers progress in their careers and move into better work.  L&W were commissioned to evaluate the pilot and to draw lessons for commissioning and delivering in-work progression support in the future.

The report describes the delivery of Step Up and the outcomes achieved and draws out key lessons for the commissioning, design, delivery and evaluation of future support, including how to recruit and engage low-paid works; delivering support effectively; engaging with employers and connecting people to better jobs; designing outcome measures for in-work progression; and evaluating impact.
