About us

The aim of the NDCO program is to drive change so that people with disability have equitable opportunity to access, participate and achieve their goals in tertiary education and subsequent employment.

The Australian Government’s National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program works strategically to assist people with disability access and participate in tertiary education and subsequent employment, through a national network of regionally based NDCOs.

The NDCOs work with stakeholders at the local level to reduce systemic barriers, facilitate smooth transitions, build links and coordinate services between the education, training and employment sectors. The NDCO Program operates within the framework of the Disability Discrimination Act and the Disability Standards for Education 2005.

The NDCO Program objectives are to:

Improve linkages between schools, tertiary education providers, employment service providers and providers of disability programs and assistance at all government levels;
Improve transitions for people with disability between school / community and tertiary education, and then to subsequent employment; and
Improve participation by people with disability in tertiary education and subsequent employment.

There are 31 NDCOs across Australia, and 7 are located within Victoria. This website provides information in about pathways and resources in Victoria.
