The National Disability Coordination Officer Program (NDCO) and the Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) have launched the following new and free e-learning training programs about Supporting Students with Disability in VET:
- VET Staff – Supporting Students with Disability
- VET Educators – Supporting Students with Disability
Funded by Skills Tasmania, Training and Work Pathways Program 2019 and the Commonwealth Department of Education, Training Product Development Program, these training programs aim to build further understanding and confidence in supporting students with disability to be successful in completing studies in vocational education and training (VET).
The training focuses on how VET staff and educators can communicate, interact and respond to the needs of individuals with disability to positively influence their experience and educational outcomes.
It also explores how development, delivery and assessment practices can have a significant impact. Accessibility and inclusion is promoted, as is the reduction of barriers in VET.
It is anticipated this training will play an essential role in acknowledging and supporting the vital part the VET sector plays in improving the lives of people with disability.
The training is free and available at www.disabilityawareness.com.au.
