Introduction

The Introduction to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a short course which will give you a clear understanding of the scheme and what it means to work with a person who accesses the scheme.

The course is designed for:

  • people who have just started working in the disability sector as a direct support worker (DSW)
  • people already working in the disability sector who would like to learn more about the NDIS
  • aged care workers, nurses, education support workers, childcare workers, or people with other qualifications who work with people accessing the NDIS.

Students will gain a clear understanding of the National Disability Insurance Scheme and how to better support people with a disability who access the scheme (NDIS participants).

Classes will focus on:

  • human rights and inclusive approaches
  • person-centred support
  • working safely
  • understanding, following and modifying plans.

While this short course can provide a pathway to further qualifications, it is not meant to replace full certificate-level qualifications.
