Discover employment support for students with disability: online event
Finding suitable and long-lasting graduate employment isn’t always easy, and there can be added challenges for students living with disability, illness or injury.
We want all Deakin graduates to find a job that suits their circumstances and career goals. We’re proud to partner with GradWISE, who works closely with Australian universities to provide support and improve employment opportunities for students with disability, a mental or physical health condition, or injury.
GradWISE offers you a customised coaching program in a one-on-one setting to help you gain the skills and experience to find the perfect graduate role. GradWISE will work with you, and its pool of employers, to make the perfect match and provide all the support you need before and during your employment, for as long as you need it.
I’m interested! How can I find out more?
Join this online Zoom event to learn about the award-winning program and different supports available. It will cover:
- Services to help you to find your perfect graduate or entry-level role.
- Support on how to share information about your disability and access workplace adjustments during the recruitment process.
You’ll also hear from a GradWISE Alumni about their experience with GradWISE and their exciting career!
When: Wednesday 10 November, 11am – 12.30pm
Disability support is available at Deakin
Deakin’s vibrant and diverse community includes many students who have a learning barrier or disability. This can be experienced as a result of a wide range of conditions, and includes students who care for a person with disability.
If you know – or think – you may be in this group, you need to know about the Disability Resource Centre (DRC). The DRC supports the University community to be more inclusive of, and provide adjustments for, students for whom a disability, health or mental health condition affects their access to education.
The DRC works with more than 4000 students to help them get the most out of their Deakin experience.
When you register with the DRC, you’ll be assigned a Disability Liaison Officer (DLO), who will help you access the services appropriate to your disability or condition. You might also receive a Learning Access Plan (LAP), which is designed to minimise any educational disadvantage.
