For the local economy to grow, industry requires a workforce that is motivated, innovative and has the right attitude and skills. Our schools have a national curriculum to teach and local business require a skilled workforce. Instep provides a valuable link between local secondary schools and business by harnessing the energy and expertise from local businesses to inspire students to make informed career choices.
