Petria McGoldrickPartnerships – in working together, supporting each other, always learning & celebrating success. 
It’s been fifteen years since Petria McGoldrick commenced her role as a Disability Liaison Officer at the University of Wollongong. Though it’s been a while, she can still recall her role prior to this one; she was working in occupational rehab, based in the workers’ compensation area, and also assisting people from the community with disability to fulfil their work and education goals. Clearly, disability assistance is an area she has long been passionate about.  Read more about Petria McGoldrick

We shared a number of Disability Practitioners in the Spotlight last year, including this feature of Rick Boffa. Rick has spent more than ten years at RMIT University, and told ADCET "we should aim for inclusive diversity irrespective of disability, where particular learning styles can be addressed in the main." If you would like to be featured in our Disability Practitioner in the Spotlight this year, please do get in touch!

Developed as part of the Australian Government's National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program, the Training is freely available. Its content is ideal for someone with minimal to no knowledge of disability and can also be used as a refresher course.
