WHAT IS THE NDCO PROGRAM?
The Australian Government's National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program works strategically to assist people with disability access and participate in tertiary education and subsequent employment, through a national network of regionally based NDCOs.
This website aims to provide you with up-to-date information about post-secondary education training and subsequent employment in Tasmania for people with disability or ongoing medical conditions.
The National Disability Coordination Officers (NDCO) program is excited to launch eight new resources to support students with disability get the support they need to undertake further education. Getting the Right Support at the Right Time with the Right People - NDIS Pre-planning Toolkits have been designed for people with disability to use before they start their studies at a university, TAFE, or other vocational education and training provider, and when they have their first National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan or review.

Beyond the School Gate
Year 10, 11 & 12 students with disability, their families and school support staff are invited to attend an information evening about post-school options and support services.
Leaving school can be a challenging time for young people and their families, and it is hoped these sessions will enable young people to be to be more informed and aware of the options available at the end of year 12.
