National Disability Coordination Officer
UON is proud to support the National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program for the New England-North West (Region 2), Hunter-Central Coast (Region 6), and North Coast (Region 7).
Transitioning into training, education and employment are important steps. NDCOs drive change so that people with disability have equitable opportunity to access, participate, and achieve their goals in tertiary education and subsequent employment. 31 NDCOs are based regionally across Australia.
There are many pathways to consider when leaving school. Here you will find information on resources and support to help you map out options and prepare for life after school.
Employing someone with disability creates a workplace culture within your organisation that values diversity and promotes the employment of people with disability. See information on internship programs and employing a person with disability.
If you are a graduating student with disability there are resources, internship programs and links to information which can help make the transition to employment as smooth as possible.
