Government Directives on the Integration of Students with a Disability Into the TAFE System: Causes and Effects as Reflected Within the New England Institute of TAFE

Twemlow, M.,

Academic Literature

2005

This study explored the views of teachers, consultants and practitioners about the integration of students with a disability into TAFE. The research considers: (a) What legislation is in place to support students with a disability in Australia and specifically within NSW? (b) What has TAFE NSW done to embrace the concept of total integration for students with a disability? (c) How does the TAFE NSW concept compare with other similar institutions? Participant answered a list of questions and responded to interviews. The study has revealed that TAFE NSW staff and students have little understanding of the relevant areas of legislation. Furthermore, TAFE NSW staff and students believe that there is still a long way to go before TAFE NSW is fully supportive of the students with disabilities. Participants also beleived that the current services can be significantly improved.
