The Nesbitt Centre’s Preparation for Life Programme seeks to respond to changing community expectations, and those of our students, to assist them to raise competence and confidence levels.
It has at its core the development of skills and activities to help students live as independently as possible, as well as being able to care and advocate for themselves with the least amount of support.
Each student enjoys a full schedule of training to support his or her Preparation for Life Programme Plan. These plans reflect a close collaboration among students, their family members and TNC staff, and include an individual schedule of training work and leisure opportunity to support students’ desires and interests.
Our program is based on the following:
