Our History

In 2016, Step-in Step-up started as a domestic helper group in Jackie’s home learning such skills as general house cleaning, washing and ironing, personal hygiene, grooming, taking care of animals, grocery shopping, cooking and basic English.

The demand for these friendly, confident ladies grew and so a classroom was acquired. Boys were invited into the programme and a vocational skills rotation was created.

And so the Academy was born.
