Introduction

National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program

The NDCO Program aims to assist people with disability to move between school, vocational education and training (VET) and higher education, to succeed in their chosen studies and begin suitable employment.

There are three key objectives for the Program:

  • Improved linkages between schools, Tertiary Education providers, employment service providers and providers of disability programs and assistance at all government levels;
  • Improved transitions for people with disability between school / community and Tertiary Education, and then to subsequent employment; and
  • Improved participation by people with disability in Tertiary Education and subsequent employment.

The National Disability Coordination Officer Program is funded by the Department of Education and operated throughout Western Australia by EDGE Employment Solutions (Inc).
