Types of support:

  • Advice on physical access
  • Disability counselling and advocacy support
  • AUSLAN interpreters
  • Specialised equipment and software 

These services are provided free of charge and operate across all campuses.

Specialist Employment Partnerships

TAFE Specialist Employment Partnerships (TSEP) is a free, on-campus employment service that supports graduating students with a disability who are seeking employment.

A specialist consultant will be onsite at The Gordon one day per week, rotating between our main campuses. 

This is a trial program funded by NDCO. The service will commence in early October and run until  late March 2020. 

To register your interest in the TSEP program, please contact our Disability Liaison Officers; Helen on 52250768 or Rodney on 52250835.
