The National Disability Coordination Officer program works toward the Australia-wide coordination and delivery of support services for people with disabilities that are, or will be attending, university, TAFE or other training organisations.
National Disability Coordination Officers will work to build links between the education, training and employment sectors, so that people with a disability have assistance at all levels.
The NDCO program aims to:
- Improve transitions for people with a disability from their school or community into post-school education, training and subsequent employment
- Increase participation by people with a disability in higher education, vocational education and training and employment
- Establish better links between schools, universities, TAFE colleges, training providers, employment services, employers and disability service providers so that they can work together to provide the best possible assistance for people with a disability.
