Region 17 Environmental Analysis 2018

The purpose of the National Disability Coordination Officer Programme (NDCO) Environmental Analysis is to provide a contextual analysis of the issues facing people with disability at the NDCO regional level. The NDCO programme operates strategically at a local level to improve education and employment outcomes for people with disability from 14 to 64 years. The following information relates to NDCO Region 17 (East Victoria and Outer South East Melbourne) incorporates local government areas East Gippsland, Wellington, Latrobe, Baw Baw, South Gippsland and Bass Coast.

Employability Curriculum Linked to the ‘Employability DVD’

In 2017 the film ‘Employability’ was produced by the EMPLOYABILITY Partnership of Debbie-Ann Johnson Sale & District Specialist School, Andrea McCall-Evans NDCO and Leanne Wishart, Rural Access, Wellington Shire.Darryl Whitaker was our cameraman and donated some of the time to help edit the film. The film would not have been possible without the grant from the Commonwealth Bank; we thank them for their generous donation.

The film focusses on the eight employability skills and features a number of young people with disabilities in the workplace.
