The inquiry heard how learners with disability can be supported to access and fully participate in TAFE programs in Victoria. Amongst other things, it examined: 

  • the social and economic benefits of improving access to TAFE for learners with disability  
  • the experiences of learners with disability accessing and participating in TAFE programs  
  • barriers to learners with disability accessing TAFE and ideas for addressing these  
  • the effectiveness of current government and TAFE policies and programs in supporting learners with disability and suggestions for improvement. 

We wanted to know what makes it hard for people with a disability to learn at TAFE. TAFE is where people learn new skills. For example, job skills. We wanted to know how to make it easier for people with a disability to go to TAFE.

On 26 November 2020, the Legislative Assembly passed a motion extending the reporting date for the Inquiry to 30 September 2021.
