"Blind People in Charge"


Blind People in Charge is The Pacific Training Centre’s core program. Designed for adults who are blind or losing their vision, participants learn vital skills that lead to greater independence.

Learning Outcomes

We use a progressive and proven training style known as ‘Structured Discovery’. Students are taught foundational skills in areas such as cane travel, Braille, adaptive technology, life skills such as cooking and employment readiness.  They then use these skills in practical situations to build confidence.

Students who have graduated from this program have gone on to live independently, become employed, and start their own businesses.


The Blind People in Charge program is offered from September to June each year and intake occurs continually. If you are blind, losing your sight, or know of someone who could benefit from this training, please contact us for more information. Or, if you prefer, read our Scope of Services for yourself.
