To encourage the well-being of students and contribute to their harmonious integration into society.
To respond to the needs of the student for whom a TEVA process is deemed necessary. To permit different networks involved with students to collaborate and explore with all partners, different actions to take for the future of students, and to link these interventions in terms of continuity and complementarity of services.
In this sense, the Quebec government is committed
- via the Stratégie d’action jeunesse 2009-2014 to encourage transition to active life and keep them employed.
- via the National strategy for labour market integration and maintenance of handicapped persons to better support, since 2008 the planning of the transition from school to active living.
- via the policy “Equals in Every Respect: Because rights are meant to be exercised” to increase the access, complementarity and coordination of programs and services.
In this sense, this process brings together
- Guidelines of the Quebec Education Program, notably the Work-Oriented Training Pathway.
- The I care about school! – All together for student success action strategy.
- School adaptation policy.
- MEES/MSSS complementarity of services agreement.
- guidance counselling approach.
because the process is part of the student’s Individualized Education Plan.
For some students, particular attention must be paid to the transition from school to active life. To facilitate and assure harmonious passage of the student towards this next step in their development, more long-term planning must be envisaged in the Individualized Education Plan.
This planning is part of a multi-sectorial approach and addresses different elements of social and professional integration once they leave school: work, recreation, transport, etc. It is integral to the service plan and Individualized Education Plan.
