SVSN (Sydney)

The Sydney-based regions of the National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program support a number of Vocational Support Networks (VSNs) in the Sydney metropolitan area.

VSNs are located within Western Sydney, South Western Sydney, Sydney, and Northern Sydney.

The membership of the VSN is comprised of school staff, State and Commonwealth-funded services, and government departments who are engaged in supporting school leavers with a disability to access both employment and prevocational education and training programs.

Those who attend include:

  • School staff (DoE, CEO, Independent)
  • Other educators (TAFE, Apprenticeship programs, RTOs)
  • State and Commonwealth funded services (DES, NDIS
  • Government departments (Human Services, NDIS)
  • National Disability Coordination Officer

VSNs provide a forum for:

  • Information sharing
  • Identification of barriers and emerging trends
  • Professional development
  • Expo planning
  • Improving vocational and employment outcomes for school leavers with a disability and ensuring a smoother transition

Please note that some regions have scheduled face-to-face meetings throughout 2021. These arrangements are subject to change in accordance with NSW Health COVID-19 guidelines.       

Meeting details will be updated via e-lists where required.
