    Inclusion of people with disability in VET cross sector project: environmental scan

    People with disability experience significant barriers to economic and social contribution in Australia. Government initiatives and reforms have been driving the case for change, and some supports and programs currently exist to facilitate inclusion. However, more needs to be done to change the attitudes and systems that limit the inclusion of people with disability. Furthermore, there is evidence to suggest that vocational education and training (VET) plays an important role in furthering the employment opportunities of people with disability, particularly in helping people with disability to get a job, or to get a different job.

    This Environmental Scan seeks to outline: the current state of education and employment for people with disability, challenges and barriers that people with disability face in vocational education and training, employment and customer service contexts, emerging trends driving the need for greater inclusion of people with disability, and the existence of skill gaps and opportunities to improve Australia's VET system. The insights from this Environmental Scan will inform the recommendations for potential training package development, to be validated through targeted stakeholder consultations in January-March 2018.
