The Disability at Work conference will examine innovative ways to activate and engage people with disability along a continuum of employment opportunities.

It is designed for employment service providers (open, supported and social enterprises) and professionals interested in the promoting a broad range of employment opportunities for people with disability.

A tight labour market has resulted in a shortage of low skilled vacancies, exacerbated by high demand for these jobs from both the unemployed and underemployed. For people with disability, gaining access to employment is even more difficult. However, many people with disability have the potential to gain and maintain employment if they receive assistance with skills acquisition and targeted on the job support.

The redesign of DES, the ongoing implementation of the NDIS and the Buyability Campaign all offer an opportunity to focus on unleashing the potential for people with disability to access quality employment options in greater numbers. To achieve this, the conference will focus on vocational skills development and training, Early intervention supports through to transition to work models, an employment first model for design of NDIS participant plans, career development, enhancing access to a range of employment models and settings; and DES co-design.
