Partner Organisations

How can your engineering organisation get involved?

STEPS Engineering Your Future is a partnership between STEPS, third-level institutes and Industry.  There are a few ways in which engineeeinr organisations can get involved. Each year STEPS has a limited number of spaces for new organisations interested in hosting a group of Transition Year students for a  minimum of three days on site. 

STEPS Engineering Your Future Approved is a new initiative for engineering organisations that are interested in running their own Transition Year experience with the support of the STEPS brandmark and best practice guidelines. Contact the STEPS team to find out more about this 

We also have an Engineering Your Future Challenge Logbook - a free resource for Irish engineering organisations. 

How can you become a STEPS EYF host organisation?

Each STEPS EYF host must provide a coordinator who will lead and support STEPS EYF within their organisation or third-level institution. 

Coordinators play a vital role in the successful delivery of STEPS EYF by working with the STEPS team to manage all Transition Year applicants, developing a three to five day engineering schedule, supporting and coaching a team of volunteers to deliver their STEPS EYF schedule, and ensuring the safety of all STEPS EYF students.
