For this Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) webinar, Sharni Burstin from Skills for Australia will present information around The Inclusion of People with Disability in VET Project. She will cover the following:

  • project inception and background
  • industry consultation process and findings
  • developed and endorsed training products
  • introduction of training products
  • broader implications and initiatives needed.

The Inclusion of People with Disability in VET project commenced in 2017 and it was the first time government and industry came together to explore how the development of training packages could increase the participation of people with disability in vocational education and training (VET) and the workplace.

This cross-sector project aimed to equip vocational educators, employers and customer service providers with the skills and knowledge they need to better include people with disability in education, employment and service contexts.

The ultimate objective was to increase education and employment opportunities for people with disability across all economic sectors by addressing skill and knowledge gaps across multiple industry sectors.

Audience: Training providers, disability practitioners, and any others who are involved and/or interested in initiatives to increase access to education, employment or services for people with disability.

The webinar is free to attend, it will be live captioned and recorded. Not able to attend? You can still register, and we’ll send you details on how to access the recorded session.

When: Wednesday 5 June 2019, 1:00 – 2:00 pm AEST
