Reasonable Adjustment in teaching, learning and assessment for learners with disability - a guide for VET practitioners

Recent legislative changes have prompted updates to the vocational education and training (VET) guidelines for reasonable adjustment. Based on these changes as well as feedback from VET practitioners, the State of Queensland (Department of Employment, Small Business and Training) have recently updated the Reasonable adjustment in teaching, learning and assessment: A guide for VET practitioners.

This guide is used widely by VET practitioners to make reasonable adjustment for learners with disability. Teachers, trainers, tutors, disability practitioners and educational managers can apply the strategies and measures outlined in the guide to ensure learners with disability are not disadvantaged when undertaking training or undergoing assessment.

As part of this update the guidelines have been streamlined; legislative references updated, including copyright based on the December 2017 legislative changes; and outlined the interface of VET supports and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
