Submission to the Inquiry into career advice activities in Victorian Schools

National Disability Service (NDS) welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Inquiry
into career advice activities in Victorian schools. As the peak body in Victoria and
Australia for non-government disability service providers, NDS works both to support
the employment of people with disability and for the support and maintenance of a
robust and sustainable disability workforce. As such, this submission is divided into
two sections:

Section 1: The importance of career support for students with disability in
schools, to ensure increased workforce participation rates; and
Section 2: The need for career advisors to be cognisant of the disability
workforce as a workforce currently experiencing huge growth, and the
opportunities that are available for all students to work in this field.
