External Support Workers

Welcome to this e-learning program which has been developed by the National Disability Coordination Officer Program and the Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training.

This program focuses on the roles and responsibilities of workers who are externally employed (paid or unpaid) by individuals and organisations to provide support to students with disability in tertiary settings. The program aims to develop your understanding of how you can best provide this support and manage your responsibilities.​

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to everyone and because of this, we include alternate versions of the courses to assist screen reader users to navigate the quizzes. You will only need to enrol in the version of the course that meets your needs.
