EAQ Overview

The Queensland NDCOs have created an Alliance framework for the education, training and tertiary sectors across Queensland.  Education Alliance Queensland (EAQ) will encourage collaboration and interaction across the sectors within all NDCO Queensland regions; therefore enabling a coordinated approach and strong connection. The Alliance aims to improve education, training and tertiary transitions for students with disability.  

The Queensland NDCO team will work strategically across their five regions, identifying and addressing barriers with sector stakeholders towards positive and progressive outcomes for students with disability state-wide.  Stakeholders will connect encouraging an open environment that is better networked and informed to build capacity and address issues collectively.

EAQ INAUGURAL MEETINGS

We welcomed EAQ attendees on 17 & 19 March who joined us for the Inaugural EAQ meetings as we connected electronically via hubs with colleagues from across Queensland.

We heard from CQ University on the successful ConnectAbility initiative that connects high school students with disability to future tertiary education and training pathways.  There is great interest in expanding this initiative across a number of NDCO regions.  Learn More

We also shared our thoughts through our EAQ workshop and received some very good feedback on key topics within the education, training and tertiary sectors.  This information will help us to target relevant webinar topics for our EAQ Webinar on 2 June 2020.

EAQ LAUNCH

The NDCO Queensland team launched this initiative in January this year.  During 2020 and beyond we look forward to working collectively with the education, training and tertiary sectors to ensure smooth transitions for students with disability.
