Location: Online, via Zoom


On Monday, 21 November 2022, we presented a webinar called School to Work: Discovering Work. This is one of our foundational School to Work webinars. In it, we explored how students with disability in Years 9 and 10 can start planning for meaningful work during and after school. We encouraged students with disability and their families to imagine the valued work roles they can strive towards.

If you missed the live webinar, you can still watch the replay for a limited time.
