An easy to use developmental framework focusing on functional skills, life skills and employability skills designed for Post 16 settings

Curriculum: Post 16
Connecting Steps assessment framework: Steps4Life


Our new framework Steps4Life is designed to give settings a developmental framework to assess learners working towards being fully independent. It focuses on functional skills, life skills and employability skills.

The framework covers a wide ability range and has 12 levels in total, 7 levels that are the equivalent of P1 to P8, Entry Levels 1, 2 and 3 and RQF Level 1 and 2. It is split into 3 packs predominantly aimed at Post 16, but they can also be used with pupils in key stage 1 - 4.


  • The Life Skills Pack is the first of three for Post 16 learners. It is complete is available now contact us on 01252 870133 or send an email to sales@bsquared.co.uk

  • The second pack is the Academic Pack, it will cover functional English, functional Maths and function ICT. This is currently being developed and should be ready for trial toward the end of the autumn term.
  • The third pack will be our Work Pack, this will look at areas around employment and employability.

The Life Skills Pack covers the following:

Preparing Food

  • Using Utensils & Appliances
  • Preparing Meals, Snacks & Drinks
  • Hygiene, Health & Safety
  • Taking Nutrition


  • Dressing & Undressing
  • Washing & Bathing

To make the content more affordable for schools the Life Skills Pack will be available to purchase for the number of users who will be accessing the framework, not the total number of users that use Connecting Steps.

All schools who have been on the trial AND who have completed the feedback form are entitled to a 20% discount if they pre-order by 30 September 2019. It will be available for everyone to purchase from September. To order contact us on 01252 870133 or send an email to sales@bsquared.co.uk

Look out for the next trial! We are currently working hard developing the Steps4Life Academic Pack which we will start to trial towards the end of the autumn term.

We are looking for schools to help develop content around employment and employability. If you would like to know more please email Alex on research@bsquared.co.uk
