People with disability

The department wants to attract and retain employees of the highest calibre. That is why we are committed to creating a workplace that is diverse, inclusive and reflective of the community.

Why work at Education?

The department's Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Strategy 2023-2026  outlines our commitment and plan of action for ensuring our workplaces are accessible and designed to maximise participation, as well as create leadership opportunities for employees with disability. It will be achieved through removing barriers to participation and embedding inclusive design in our thinking and responses.

How we support our commitment

There are many ways in which our department supports its commitment to people with disability. These include:

We also continue to learn new ways to be more inclusive. That is why we are a proud member of the Australian Network on Disability (AND).
