VET Training and Assessing in NDIS related Qualifications Workshop

The Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) has funded the VET Development Centre (VDC) to develop and deliver specific professional learning for Vocational Education and Training (VET) teachers, trainers and assessors delivering National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) qualifications. This training is part of a suite of quality initiatives under Victorian Government’s Keeping our Sector Strong: Victoria’s Workforce Plan for the rollout of the NDIS. The overall objective of this professional development program is to:

  • ensure VET trainers and assessors are current and able to teach skills required for the NDIS environment
  • connect trainers and assessors with NDIS clients and service providers
  • focus on the fundamental changes in thinking and acting that are required to put the principles of the NDIS into practice
  • provide assistance for the transition to NDIS, and enhance the quality of teaching and learning.
