Our framework

Developing STEP skills in young people

75%
of our mainstream participants reported improvement in 3 or more of our STEP skills

In 2011, we developed a bespoke impact measurement framework to evaluate the difference we make.

The STEP Framework focuses on the skills at the heart of our mission: the Social, Thinking, Emotional and Physical skills that we seek to develop in our young people. We believe these 12 skills will help our participants to lead happy and healthy lives, and to act as positive social influences both at school and beyond.

Due to the differences in the needs of our young people, the Greenhouse Sports STEP Framework is slightly different for our Special Educational Needs participants. By instilling the STEP skills identified below, we hope to help our young people with SEN to work towards independence wherever possible.

We measure STEP skills via a combination of self-assessments, coach assessments and objective measures such a fitness testing and, in turn, use the results to help strengthen our programmes and identify areas for continual improvement.
