The Vocational Support Networks aim to be the peak forum for communication, information sharing, and joint planning between Schools, Higher education, Vocational services and Government programs in their Region for people with a disability. A network for direct support staff of education, training, employment related and other relevant providers.
Each Network provides members with regular opportunities to meet with other local providers relevant to transition of school leavers with disability; network during a social morning tea; discuss arising issues affecting the region; and to participate in information sessions on current transition related topics. The Networks are supported by a Steering Committee (the group of agencies who collectively run the Network), which share roles such as Chair and Minute taker, organising meetings, speakers and the running of the Network.
Membership of the Vocational Support Networks consists of -
- Staff at Government, Independent and Catholic schools;
- University, TAFE and RTOs;
- Job Services Australia Providers;
- Disability Employment Providers;
- Local Disability Service providers;
- ADHC postschool programs;
