Disability Course

Course Access: Lifetime
Course Overview

The Disability course is designed to improve your understanding of disability in all its guises, and to show how employment options for people with disability can be improved and embraced. The course has been created in collaboration with the Australian Network on Disability (AND). We are indebted to the many people with lived experience who generously gave us their time, to the Workforce Diversity and Inclusion team at the University of Queensland for their invaluable insights and for access to their leading researchers, and to Northcott Disability Services.

The course should take approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes to complete in total, and it is split into 4 modules.
