USEP/TSEP Toolkits now on ADCET
University Specialist Employment Partnerships (USEP) and TAFE Specialist Employment Partnerships (TSEP) partnership toolkits are initiatives of the National Disability Coordination Officer program, an Australian Government initiative that looks to drive change so that people with disability have equitable opportunity to access, participate and achieve their goals in tertiary education and subsequent employment.
The National Disability Coordination Officer Program in partnership with the Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) are excited to announce the launch of the online toolkits hosted through the ADCET website available and easily accessible for new and current partnerships. The toolkits are integrated into the ADCET Graduate Employment Section where you will be able to access all documents in relation to setting up a new partnership or continuing a current program.
The USEP and TSEP programs support final year university/TAFE students with disability to prepare for the workforce, by honing their ability to compete for employment opportunities related to their area of study, and make key connections with employers who offer graduate, corporate, or apprenticeship roles. This is made possible by a partnership established between universities/TAFEs and Specialist Employment Services.
The aim of USEP and TSEP is to line up career opportunities for students with disability, so they can gain employment upon graduation or very shortly after. This website will help you navigate implementation at your university or TAFE. It offers resources and tools to help you connect with partners that can support the employment aspirations of graduating students.
The toolkits outline:
- the benefits of USEP or TSEP
- a range of information and resources – vital in building strong partnerships
- how to develop a successful partnership that will work best for your university or TAFE
- ideas, documents, templates and reflections from successful partners
- branding guidelines and editable marketing and promotional templates
- resources to help students consider their obligations and rights in the workforce when disclosing their support needs
