What People Say
As a newcomer to the tertiary education sector, ADCET has been an enormous source of information, wisdom and support in all things education related. I’ve worked in the disability sector for over 30 years and ADCET is by far the most comprehensive and professional resource I have ever come across. The collegiality and willingness of practitioners across the country to share their knowledge and expertise is truly inspirational.Michelle Anderson, ManagerAccess & Inclusion, University of SA
ADCET provides the Tertiary Education Sector with the most up to date current professional training. The webinars provided professional training over the breadth of a worker’s carer. This training has embedded a high quality of service across Tertiary Education Sector in Australia.Liz Sullivan, ManagerUniAccess, Student Success and Wellbeing, University of Western Australia
When I arrived in Australia 8 years ago and then landed my first role as a disability practitioner on Aussie soil, ADCET was my source of truth! I was the only disability advisor in the university and having ADCET to refer to ensured that I aligned with best practice in the sector. I have also referred countless academics and students to the website, to explore teaching strategies and assistive technology options. ADCET ensures that we as practitioners are all on the same page which benefits students with disability in tertiary education. Thank you ADCET for supporting us to support students with disability equitably, and I look forward to the next 25 years!Veronica Nelson, Access and Inclusion AdvisorUniversity of SA
A TAFE QLD practitioner for 28 years; I moved into a disability educational role in 2017. The ADCET team and their amazing suite of innovative and inclusive resources immediately made me feel comfortable, in control and totally supported. Through their modelling and encouragement I now get involved with the development and trialling of resources for our industry! The ADCET team genuinely cares for student and practitioner growth, both professionally and personally.Meredith Jackson, Leading Vocational TeacherStudent Support, TAFE Queensland
As a disability practitioner who often provides discrete support to our students, ADCET has been my ‘go-to’ resource for technology know-how, practitioner best practice and often just the simple but vital confirmation that I’m doing the best I can for our students engagement, independence and progression. ADCET is a wonderful resource. Happy 20th birthday!Brandon Taylor, ManagerTAFE Queensland
