Sector Training Activities




Industry Plan Pre-Consultation Forum

NDS WA have commissioned Acil Allen to develop an Industry Plan for the disability sector in WA that will assist organisations and government ascertain the quantum, location and type of services required when the NDIS is fully phased into WA by 2020.
They will be providing a consultation session only for the Workforce and Finance Subcommittees, workforce and sustainability being two KEY considerations in a full NDIS in WA, later in the year. 
As a pre-curser to Industry Plan consultation process we have arranged for Cath Ralston DWIN Advisor TAS to present her project work around collaboration between the training and disability services sectors to strengthen the quality of vocational education on Tuesday 18 October.

NDS is pleased to offer a half day workshop with Cath Ralston, Disability Workforce Innovation Advisor Tasmania.

A core focus of the DWIN project in Tasmania has been to coordinate industry-led approaches to strengthen the quality of vocational education and training in the disability sector. Cath will outline some of the resources that have been developed as part of this project, and lead a workshop to develop a validation checklist for a unit of competence from the Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability). Three checklists developed by the Tasmanian project have already been shared with WA training providers.

This workshop will be of interest to RTOs that deliver disability qualifications, as well as staff involved in training support workers within the sector.
