The Attitudes of People with a Disability to Undertaking VET Training. Occasional Paper
Nechvoglod, Lisa; Griffin, Tabatha
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This research used a survey to investigate the attitudes of people with a disability towards undertaking training. The findings show very positive attitudes towards training by participants and, although the ability to generalise to the wider population is limited, one thing is clear: generally, people with a disability are willing to undertake vocational education and training (VET) and consider it a good option in helping them find employment. Some factors affected attitudes more than others, including level of school-based education; highest qualification level completed; whether people had single or multiple disabilities; and, to some extent, gender. (Contains 10 tables and 1 footnote.)
