Making the move to college easy!

Our Next Step Programme aims to equip young people who are blind or vision impaired with the skills to manage the transition to life in college.

This course is delivered in a relaxed, yet focused environment.

We provide participants with a “home away from home” atmosphere and the opportunity to spend time with peers in a valuable aspect of the course.

The 5-day residential course includes learning about travel and using public transport, visiting campus accommodation, and tips on making the most of shared living spaces, meeting with Disability Support Services in college, shopping, budgeting and banking skills, assistive technology, personal safety in the community, interview skills and CV writing, introduction to dog mobility, confidence building techniques, cooking and home skills.

We train people from the age of 16. All courses are provided at no cost to you.
