LEARNING & EMPLOYMENT IN THE DISABILITY SECTOR

In association with the Adelaide North Special School and the Disability Workforce Hub (Northern Futures Inc.), we are hosting a seminar and exhibition to inform the community of the learning and employment opportunities available in the disability sector. 

People who wish to work in the sector, those living with disability looking for meaningful work and small businesses that would like to explore what opportunities might exist for them will all find the event beneficial.

The seminar and exhibition will be held on Wednesday 5th April 2017 from 6pm at the Adelaide North Special School, 135 Douglas Dr, Munno Para.

A full program will be available on my website at www.tonypiccolo.org from Friday 3rd March 2017.

The exhibition will have a number of service providers and advocacy groups from both the not for profit and for profit sectors and government agencies. Those attending the exhibition will have an opportunity to talk one to one with service providers or regulators.

A number of speakers will provide an overview of the new opportunities for learning and employment in the disability sector as a result of the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in northern Adelaide and the Barossa regions from 1 July 2017.

If you are a service provider and considering exhibiting or speaking at the exhibition/seminar, you are invited to attend a special briefing on Monday 20th February 2017 at 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm at the Adelaide North Special School.

The briefing will outline the proposed program for the event and receive feedback about the needs of potential exhibitors and speakers. Advocacy groups are also welcome to attend.

Registration forms for speakers and exhibitors will be available on the night. To register for the briefing please do so online at http://www.tonypiccolo.org/learning-and-employment-briefing by Thursday 16th February 2017.

While the exhibition and seminar will focus on learning and employment service providers in related fields are also welcome to exhibit.
