The conference brought together disability practitioners, NDCOs and a range of other professional, academic staff and students with disability to identify and remove barriers for people with disability participating in post-secondary education and training.
Pathways provides a unique opportunity to improve our knowledge and plays a pivotal role in supporting practitioners and the sector in general with an opportunity for professional development. It encourages discussion and debate which informs the sector and ensures that we are all working towards an improved practice model.
Pathways14 centres around the theme; Progressive Partnerships – Inclusive, Innovative and Ingenuity. The Pathways14 Conference will celebrate the 27th Anniversary of Pathways in Australia. Exploring the past 27 years will enable us to look back since the first Pathways Conference in Geelong in 1991, and explore Changes in the field of post- secondary education and training for people with disability and look forward to the Challenges and Choices of the future.
The conference brought different perspectives and rich diversity of experience and understanding from all that attend. We hope Pathways14 will allow colleagues from around Australia to come together to share and learn more about current practices in the area of post- secondary education and training for people with disability, to gain inspiration from others and to strengthen networks of friends and colleagues.
Manly is located on Guringai land, on a peninsula with the eastern sandy beaches of the Pacific Ocean and our glorious Sydney Harbour on its western side. It has the vibrancy and the beauty of a coastal place with many restaurants, bush trails, tourist attractions as well as a place to relax and enjoy the sunshine.
