Disability Support

Federation Training is committed to fostering a culture of inclusiveness to enhance the educational opportunities for people with a disability, enabling them to participate as fully as possible in their study at TAFE.  Disability Support offers a range of academic adjustments to assist students studying with a disability, learning barrier, medical or mental health condition to bring forth their unique strengths and personal needs.

The Disability Liaison Officer is the initial point of contact for students with a disability, learning barrier, medical or mental health. Support is negotiated on an individual basis, so please contact the Disability Liaison Officer prior to the commencement classes.

The range of support services could include:

  • Assistance with application and/or enrolment procedures.
  • Orientation to campus
  • Assistance with access requirements
  • Provision of adaptive study materials and equipment
  • Negotiating alternative learning and assessment tasks
  • Negotiating reasonable adjustments
  • Provision of information and support to other Federation Training staff
  • Negotiating alternative arrangements for examinations
  • Information about and referral to community support services
  • Information and advocacy about disability discrimination and equal opportunity
