Submission To The NSW Legislative Council Inquiry Into Vocational Education And Training

“The Smart and Skilled reforms do not encourage participation of people with disability in the VET sector and thus far their impact has been to create uncertainty, reduce accessibility and limit social and economic opportunity for students with disability.  Our primary recommendations are for the Committee to strongly support the role and resourcing of TAFE as a provider of VET, to recommend regulatory mechanisms for course fees and course quality, and to advocate for a flexible, NDIS style disability support funding model based on person centred approaches to learning as opposed to the provision of generic supports.”
