image-12_cmyk_rgb 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
