ADCET Webinar: NDIS and further education panel discussion
25 September 2019
The Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) and the National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program are hosting a panel discussion on the intersectionality between the National Disability Insurance Scheme and the post-secondary education system. Hear from TAFE and university disability practitioners about their experiences.
The panel will be given a case study to work through and discuss some of the grey areas that have arisen with the introduction of the scheme across the country.
There will be time for Q&A at the end of the panel discussion.
The webinar is free to attend, it will be live captioned and recorded. The captioned video will then be made available on the ADCET website.
