Inquiry into Access to TAFE for Learners with Disability
TAFE qualifications help learners to gain meaningful employment and achieve financial independence and greater wellbeing. Despite their right to access and participate in education on the same basis as their peers, people with disability have lower rates of education and employment participation than people without disability.
This Inquiry’s terms of reference asked the Legislative Assembly’s Economy and Infrastructure Committee to examine access to TAFE for learners with disability. The Committee considered the barriers learners with disability face when trying to access and participate in TAFE and the support they and TAFE staff need to maximise the learning experience.
