About the Employer Partnership Programme

The Employer Partnership Programme, formerly known as the Employer Training Scheme, was introduced in November 2014 as a pilot accreditation scheme. STEP members had identified through a member survey that they wanted the TEP designation to be seen as career essential by employers and STEP recognised the huge benefits for all parties to be gained from establishing close relationships with STEP employers. STEP’s view was that the programme would enable us to support the professional development of our members and build upon the credibility of the STEP brand by means of:

  • Providing a comprehensive and structured support programme with access to both a wide range of online resources and  personal support from the Professional Development team at STEP,
  • Promoting industry wide recognition of the STEP accreditation, hence helping accredited partners  to demonstrate their credentials as quality employers,
  • Enabling accredited partners to network and share good practice with like-minded employers.

Watch our new STEP EPP video which showcases the highlights of the programme.  You will see who we are working with and how we work with our accredited employer partners. 

This short video has been produced to support the launch of the EPP in the Caribbean at the Caribbean Conference in Barbados in May 2018.  http://www.stepcaribbeanconference.com/
