Disability at Work 2018 – The next frontier
Explore 'the next frontier' in disability employment at Disability at Work 2018.
The two-day Disability at Work conference will examine innovative ways to activate and engage people with disability in employment opportunities.
It is designed for employment service providers (open, supported, social enterprises and transition to work) and professionals interested in promoting a broad range of employment opportunities for people with disability.
Following feedback from recent years, we’ve made some changes to how our 2018 Disability at Work conference will look. Day One will focus on big picture issues for providers, including outcomes measurement, attracting participants, the policy landscape and prioritising employment. Day Two will include four concurrent streams covering Open Employment, Supported Employment, Work Ready and BuyAbility.
2018 promises to be a year of significant opportunities and challenges for employment service providers. A new DES contract in 2018 will have a greater focus on participant choice and control, as well as employer engagement and there will be many other changes, too.
Disability at Work looks to engage you in the new world of disability employment and give you the best resources for success in the 2018-19 year.
