The Australian Government’s National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) program works strategically to assist people with disability to access and participate in tertiary education and subsequent employment, through a national network of regionally based NDCOs. The NDCO Program is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Education. The NDCOs work with stakeholders at the local level to reduce systemic barriers, facilitate smooth transitions, build links and coordinate services between the education, training and employment sectors. The NDCO program adopts the Disability Discrimination Act (1992) definition of disability. The NDCO program objectives are to: - improve linkages between schools, tertiary education providers, employment service providers and providers of disability programs and assistance at all government levels; - improve transitions for people with disability between school/community and tertiary education, and then to subsequent employment; and - improve participation by people with disability in tertiary education and subsequent employment. There are currently 31 NDCO Regions Australia wide and the IMVC is the NDCO Program Provider for Regions 11 (Inner and Northern Metropolitan Melbourne) and 13 (Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne). For more information on the NDCO program in Victoria, visit www.ndcovictoria.net.au. For more information or enquiries about the IMVC’s NDCO program, please call 03 9686 2354.
