National Disability Coordinator Officer Program

The National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program is an Australian Government initiative funded by the Commonwealth Department of Education, Skills & Employment. The NDCO’s work strategically to assist people with disability to access and participate in tertiary education and subsequent employment, through a national network of regionally based Coordination officers. There are 31 NDCO’s across Australia, with three based in WA.

The Program also seeks to increase the knowledge and awareness of people with disability about their post-school options and support to enable them to participate into the same extent as people without a disability.
