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.

VDC is working with National Disability Services (NDS) to develop this program.

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.


Workshop
This interactive workshop has been developed by VDC and NDS for VET trainers and assessors to discuss NDIS and explore the workforce and VET implications on the delivery and assessment of NDIS related qualifications.

Areas of focus: 

  • The road to NDIS
  • The Pre-Training Review
  • Choosing suitable and appropriate candidates for enrolment
  • Person centred approaches and active support
  • Integrating policy with units of competency and associated assessment requirements
  • Unpacking the unit and the assessment requirements to provide individualised support
  • Work Placements - Forming partnerships with service providers
  • Vocational Competence and Industry Currency
