Welcome to the NDCO Program

Victoria website

The National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education Skills and Employment.

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

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

For professional development opportunities, resources, events, research, policy and advocacy updates and more please see our Victorian NDCO Post Archive.

P2T is an online series of events, culminating in a virtual opportunity to connect with TAFE and university disability practitioners. This project is aimed at improving the transition of students with disability from secondary school into tertiary education.

NDCOs will engage with stakeholders nationally including the VET and Higher Education sector to co-design the delivery of online content to provide students with disability and those that support them (including parents/caregivers, school educators/careers practitioners) with access to critical and timely information about preparing for tertiary education.
