We were proud to host the launch of VET Sector Disability Awareness e-learning resources on International Day of People with Disability earlier this month.

The VET Staff – Supporting Students with Disability, and VET Educators – Supporting Students with Disability resources are free e-learning training programs outlining how staff working in the vocational education and training (VET) sector can communicate, interact and respond to the needs of individuals with disability to positively influence their experience and education outcomes.

They aim to build further understanding and confidence in supporting students with disability to successfully complete their vocational studies.

The resources were launched by the National Disability Coordination Officer program and the Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training at TasTAFE’s Campbell Street Campus. Minister for Education and Training, Jeremy Rockliff was also part of the launch.

Staff from TasTAFE and various TAFE’s throughout Australia were part of the development of the resources.

They are funded by the Skills Tasmania Training and Work Pathways Program 2019 and the Commonwealth Department of Education, Training Product Development Program.
