National Disability Coordination Officer Program (NDCO) webinar: Get the right tools for employment success — the JobAccess employer toolkit

To succeed in any field, you need to have the passion, skills and experience but also the right tools for the job. Disability Employment Services (DES) providers and employers should look no further than the JobAccess Employer Toolkit — a new online resource for matters relating to disability employment.

The recently-launched toolkit contains expert information, downloadable resources and real-life case studies on a wide range of topics, right from developing inclusive policies and procedures and accessible recruitment to managing workplace modifications.

In this webinar, JobAccess General Manager Daniel Valiente-Riedl will share how DES providers can utilise the toolkit when working with employers to achieve positive outcomes.

The webinar will highlight:

  • Accessible employment: what does this look like in an Australian workplace?
  • JobAccess Employer Toolkit: what topics are covered, what resources are available and how can they be used to foster an inclusive and accessible workplace?
  • Putting it into practice: how do employers, DES providers and people with disability work with JobAccess for employment success?

The webinar is:

  • FREE
  • Auslan interpreted and live captioned
  • Recorded
