National Disability Services Ticket to Work Submission to the Inquiry into access to TAFE for learners with disability
Victorian TAFE funding needs to be modified to better support young people with disability to gain employment through education and training, which is critical to improving social and economic outcomes for people with disability. The NDS Ticket to Work initiative focuses on improving school to work pathways for young people with disability through a coordinated approach. This initiative advocates for systemic change and works to improve open employment participation in Australia by working collectively at a local level and providing an architecture for optimal employment and career achievement for young people with disability. This submission is informed by the experience, research and evaluations of Ticket to Work.
