Work placement for school students with disability
These resources include guidelines for employers that were developed from a pilot program based on best practice CDL for students with disabilities at University of Tasmania. The guidelines are aimed at employers either currently hosting or considering hosting school-based VET students with disability in work-based learning placements.
Guidelines for Employers/Workplace Hosts
These guidelines are based on interviews with employers who host school-based VET students with disability for work placements and their school coordinators, expert input from an Advisory Group and other literature.
