The TAFE SA Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) 2020-2024 was developed in consultation with TAFE SA staff, students and the community. The views, ideas and feedback helped us to ensure we have a DAIP where our stakeholders’ voices are heard and included to support and drive the 2020-2024 TAFE SA DAIP actions.
The TAFE SA DAIP Working Group will be working hard together guided by input from people with lived experience of disability to implement our plan and improve what we do at TAFE SA.
TAFE SA plays an important role in shaping South Australia’s economy and workforce and is committed to providing high quality vocational education for all South Australians. TAFE SA is committed to ensuring accessibility and inclusion. The strength and vitality of our organisation into the future will depend on our diversity and our capacity to engage staff and students, including those living with disability, as valued members and contributors at TAFE SA.
We will utilise the voices and experiences of people living with disability as a key asset as we continue to improve our services to the communities of South Australia. The TAFE SA Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) 2020-2024 builds on and expands the achievements of the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2015–2020. TAFE SA values the voices of people living with disability and our DAIP has been developed in consultation with staff, students, members of the community and disability organisations.
As South Australia’s publicly funded provider of vocational education and training, TAFE SA is in a unique position to make a significant contribution to the future of people living with disability through education and employment, focussed on strengthening abilities and supporting participation in the workforce and the wider community. I look forward to working together to implement our plan and continuing to provide an environment at TAFE SA which is welcoming, accessible and accommodating for all our staff and students.
The TAFE SA Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) operates in line with the Disability Inclusion Act 2018 (SA), Inclusive SA: State Disability Inclusion Plan 2019-2023, the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
A TAFE SA DAIP Working Group was formed that consisted of membership from staff and students living with disability, and staff representation from business units across TAFE SA. The Working Group developed the 2020-2024 TAFE SA DAIP which builds upon key findings from the 2015-2020 TAFE SA DAIP and supports the strategic improvement of access and support for people living with disability at TAFE SA and aligns with State Government and TAFE SA strategic objectives.
