The Australian Government’s National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program works strategically to assist people with disability access and participate in tertiary education and subsequent employment, through a national network of regionally based NDCOs.

The NDCOs work with stakeholders at the local level to reduce systemic barriers, facilitate smooth transitions, build links and coordinate services between the education, training and employment sectors.

The NDCO Program adopts the Disability Discrimination Act (1992) definition of disability.

The NDCO Program objectives are to:

  • improve linkages between schools, tertiary education providers, employment service providers and providers of disability programs and assistance at all government levels;
  • improve transitions for people with disability between school / community and tertiary education, and then to subsequent employment; and
  • improve participation by people with disability in tertiary education and subsequent employment.

There are currently 31 NDCO Regions Australia wide. IMVC is the NDCO Program Provider for Regions 11 (Inner and Northern Metropolitan Melbourne) and 13 (Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne).

For more information or enquiries about the NDCO program in each of these regions, please contact:

For Region 11: Alison Parker via [email protected]
For Region 13: Rayce Coyte via [email protected]
