National Disability Coordination Officer Program

The National Disability Coordination Officer Program is funded by the Department of Education, Skills and Employment to drive change so that people with disability have equitable opportunity to access, participate and achieve their goals in tertiary education and subsequent employment.

NDCOs are involved in a broad range of projects at a national, state and local level, and work strategically with stakeholders to address the systemic barriers experienced by people with disability engaging in tertiary education and subsequent employment. NDCOs do not provide direct support or case management to individuals.
