About Us

Answering the needs of growth from people and territories

STEPS pioneers approaches to formal and non-formal learning to enable personal growth as well as inclusive and sustainable change in organizations and territories. STePS elaborates and manages demand-driven projects aiming at the empowerment of individuals through personalized, collaborative and participative forms of learning. We favour equitable learning opportunities by using museum, libraries, theatres, gardens and even supermarkets as alternative learning environments but we do not renounce fundamental activities like proper training need analysis, assessment and validation of competence. STEPS facilitates the active participation of institutions, and organisations, both public and private, to the European Commission programmes, which can contribute to a consistent and significant renovation of the regional, national and European policies in the field of education, innovation, culture and social policies.
