NDCO Program

What is the NDCO Program?

The National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program supports people with disability to access and participate in tertiary education and subsequent employment, through a national network of regionally based NDCOs.

 Our goals are to:
  • Improve links between schools, universities, vocational education and training organisations, job services and organisations that support people with disability 
  • Improve transitions between school/community and tertiary education and finding a job 
  • Improve participation in tertiary education and work

Create Your Future is an NDCO film project showcasing the successes and challenges experienced by people with disability from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds. These films aim to build aspiration for tertiary education and employment amongst those facing similar issues, and to create deeper and broader cultural understandings to encourage culturally safe, accessible and inclusive support services.

Original short films, made with and for people with disability from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, sharing personal stories from their own unique cultural perspective.
