STEPS Pathways is an intensive 12 month training course designed specifically to provide young adults with a disability the skills they need to live independently in the community.
Students learn practical day to day living skills in combination with actual independent living experience while they reside at the STEPS Pathways College.
Based in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast, STEPS Pathways College provides students with a pathway towards independence and the opportunity to achieve their life goals.
At STEPS Pathways College students learn a range of skills that help them to make informed choices and decisions in day to day life, as well as navigate some of life’s bigger challenges.
Our students will learn important practical independent living skills designed to maintain a tenancy, access health and local services, effectively bank and budget, utilise technology, and to stay healthy and well.
Students will also learn some of the skills required to cope with change, develop relationships in the community, and form lifelong friendships.
Through a holistic learning model that combines practical with actual living experience our students will graduate from STEPS Pathways College with the confidence they need to take charge of their independence and their future.
Students at STEPS Pathways College will reside in a modern, fully fitted and contained unit designed to reflect an independent living environment.
Each student has the privacy of their own bedroom, bathroom and patio, and a shared living room, kitchen, and outdoor entertainment area. Students can enjoy the many beautifully landscaped outdoor areas and green spaces throughout the campus which include volley ball courts, a community garden, and shared BBQ area for socialising, relaxing and study.
Onsite support to students is available at all times and the college is closely monitored with external CCTV in operation 24/7 for student security.
