Beyond compliance: ACE and the disability standards for education in 2005

Buckingham, J., Graffam, J.,

Academic Literature


This article evaluates the place of people with a disability in adult and community education (ACE), and then reviews some of the provisions of the Standards as they relate to student support.

Evidence to support the discussion is taken from three research projects into ACE provision for people with a disability. These studies are outlined before the author moves on to some of the issues indicated in the research. Further, some suggestions are made for compliance, and the need for ACE providers to go beyond compliance and consider advocacy to support the inclusion of people with a disability into ACE.
