UWA Careers Centre - National Disability Services Talk : Career opportunities in the disability sector Other events...
The National Disability Insurance Scheme brings transformational changes to the disability sector. Most significant is the doubling of the 70,000 workforce over the next few years and the opportunities this will bring for new entrants to the industry and the contribution to the lives of people living with a disability. The presentation will build awareness of the new scheme; what it offers both undergraduates and graduates as well as addressing key skills and attributes for working in the sector.

The presentation will be particularly relevant to the schools of Social Sciences, Health Science, Business, Computing, Sport Science, Business, Exercise and Health.
