National Disability Coordination Officer Program
There are 7 NDCO’s located within Victoria and SkillsPlus hosts 3 of them. The NDCO Program for Southern Melbourne, Western Victoria and Eastern Victoria is hosted by SkillsPlus. The program also offers a range of services to schools, parents, community providers and employers to build capacity within our community to support people with a disability.
Some of these programs include:
The 'Creating Confidence; Transition for Students with a Disability' workshop which aims to create further awareness of the options available for young people in their local area.
The 'Parents as Career Transition Support' (PACTS) program raises awareness of pathways to employment and social participation for students with disability and helps strengthen the interface between schools, families and post-school options.
Disability Awareness training for schools, community providers and employers, aimed at improving knowledge and understanding of people with a disability.
