ADCET Webinar: What is reasonable in Reasonable Adjustment

Event details

Disability information provided by students and/or parents can vary from sparse to extremely detailed and complex.  As VET disability practitioners, we want to act in the best interests of the student whilst also supporting VET educators to be inclusive and uphold the integrity of the relevant qualification.  

This session works through the successful Reasonable Adjustment training delivered to educators at TAFE Queensland.

In this session, we will cover:

  • Why we have reasonable adjustment and the relation to the DDA 1992, Disability Standards for Education 2005 and Standards for RTO’s
  • When to apply consider and reasonable adjustment 
  • Communicating the process to teachers and educators
  • Why do some teachers seem frustrated or reluctant to engage
  • The historical issues for some students and parents
  • How teachers should evidence reasonable adjustment
  • WHS is not an excuse
  • NDIS support workers in VET 
  • Q&A

Audience: Disability practitioners in the VET sector will find this particularly relevant and will support how you can deliver this information in your own organisation.  New practitioners in Higher Education will also find this useful.
