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.
SUPPORTING THE CAREER ASPIRATIONS OF STUDENTS WITH DISABILITY
Research indicates that people with disability are much less likely to complete Year 12 or gain a bachelor degree.
How can we turn this around?
The NDCO Program in partnership with the Department of Education, Catholic Education Office, and the Independent Schools Associations are seeking a broad representation from the school and disability sectors to develop effective strategies that will make a real difference to the career pathways of young people with disability.
How can we better support more students to follow their career aspirations to further education?
What enables some students to succeed despite the barriers they face?
Join us in discovering the factors of success, envisaging what can be done better and design practical and collaborative ways to get there.
