National Disability Coordination Officer Program Review Published

Review of the National Disability Coordination Officer Program

The 2021-22 NDCO Program Review Final Report, has been published.

The Review prepared by ORIMA Research examined whether the program was meeting the needs of students with disability in addressing existing gaps and barriers in the transition from secondary school to tertiary education and subsequent employment.


The report recommends the following;

  • A strategic and targeted approach to better respond to student needs
  • Formally bring together stakeholders from the tertiary disability equity ecosystem
  • Revised leadership model for the program
  • Adopt a partnership delivery model
  • Priorities for the next 3 years
    • 1. Strategically connect and leverage the national tertiary equity disability ecosystem to support inclusive practices through establishing a tertiary disability equity ‘backbone’;
      2. Support tertiary institutions to translate information and research into practice via a consulting approach; and
      3. Continue to progress universal design for learning in tertiary settings.
