Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education & Training (ADCET)
The Australian Federal Government, under the Higher Education Disability Support Program, is funding the maintenance of the Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) website. The site, currently the responsibility of the University of Tasmania, supports the work of disability practitioners and teachers, and promotes inclusive practices for people with disability or ongoing medical conditions.
“Over 1 in 20 students has a disability that impacts on their study. Significant progress has been made in recent years to ‘level the playing field’ and reduce discrimination however for students with disability completion rates and employment outcomes are still significantly lower than for their peers.”
