Fact Sheet for RTOs: Providing quality training and assessment services to students with disabilities
Nearly one in five Australians has a disability. This includes physical and learning disabilities, chronic medical condition or mental illness. People with disabilities have a right to access and participate in education and training. Registered training organisations are required to comply with the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015, the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA), and the Disability Standards for Education 2005 when providing services for students who may have a disability. This fact sheet aims to help RTOs understand their obligations under the Standards and other relevant legislation.
