Disability Support

GippsTAFE is committed to fostering a culture of inclusiveness to enhance the educational opportunities for people with a disability, enabling them to participate as fully as possible in their study at TAFE. The Disability Support Program offers a range of academic adjustments to assist students studying with a disability, learning, medical or mental health condition to bring forth their unique strengths and personal needs.

The Disability Liaison Officer is the initial point of contact for students with a disability, learning, medical or mental health. Support is negotiated on an individual basis, so please contact the Disability Officer prior to the commencement classes.

The range of support services could include:

  • Assistance with application and/or enrolment procedures.
  • Orientation to campus.
  • Assistance with access requirements.
  • Provision of adaptive study materials and equipment.
  • Negotiating alternative learning and assessment tasks.
  • Provision of information and support to other GippsTAFE staff.
  • Negotiating alternative arrangements for examinations.
  • Information about and referral to community support services.
  • Information and advocacy about disabilitydiscrimination and equal opportunity
