Through twenty years of experience working in the Victorian disability and higher education sector Matt Salas knows that it is the small steps and wins that really matter in achieving better outcomes for students with disability. In 1994 he began working in TAFE and Uni as a casual disability support worker. In 2000 he was offered the then solo DLO role at Holmesglen TAFE, the largest TAFE in Victoria. After overseeing the growth of that service, he moved in 2007 to the largest Uni - Monash. Read more about Matt
