National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program
The Australian Government’s National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program works strategically with stakeholders to drive change so people with disability have equitable opportunity to access, participate and achieve their goals in tertiary education and subsequent employment. National Disability Coordination Officers (NDCOs) are involved in a broad range of projects at a national, state and local level. There are 31 NDCOs who are hosted by a range of providers across Australia and the program in currently funded until June 2022.
While NDCOs are unable to provide ongoing direct support to individuals, they have created a series of free resources on topics which include:
- help with planning transition to further education while still at school
- understanding your rights in education
- tips on including your education and training goals in your NDIS plan
- succeeding at Uni
- making informed decisions about sharing personal information as well as much more.
