How to become an Accredited Employer Partner

The first step in the EPP application process is determining which level of accreditation is right for your organisation.

The STEP Professional Development Standards grid outlines the standards to achieve at each of the three levels. You will need to provide clear evidence of reflection on the learning outcomes undertaken by your organisation in order to be successful with your application.
