Let us know about your inclusive education professional learning needs

Please complete the short survey invitation by 13 May 2022

In 2021, the department began delivering Disability Inclusion, the new approach to supporting students with disability in our schools.

Along with the new tiered funding model and the Disability Inclusion Profile currently rolling out, the 5-year reform is about building the knowledge and skills of our workforce to support Disability Inclusion.

The department has a range of existing programs and supports to build capability in inclusive education, but we know there's more we can do.

That's why we want your feedback on what professional learning you need to better support students with disability and diverse learning needs.
