Cavallaro, Toni; Foley, Paul; Saunders, John; Bowman, Kaye
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This statistical compendium examines, firstly, vocational education and training (VET) students with a disability as a whole group, focusing on their participation levels, achievements and outcomes from VET, and identifies gaps and/or issues with the existing data. This is followed by a section dealing with people with different types of disabilities and a conclusion. The appendix contains detailed profiles, which can stand alone as fact sheets, for each disability type: physical disability, medical condition, vision disability, learning disability, hearing disability, intellectual disability, mental illness, acquired brain impairment, and other/unspecified disabilities. Also included is a profile on Indigenous people with a disability. (Contains 16 tables and 11 figures.)
