The NCCD case study e-learning resource intends to improve and consolidate understanding of the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data (NCCD): its relationship to the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) (1992) and Disability Standards for Education (DSE) (2005). Further to this, it intends to assist teachers and schools to enhance their shared understanding of the NCCD levels of adjustment and categories of disability and improve the consistency of the professional judgements made in order to refine the accuracy of the data submitted to government by schools.
As part of this e-learn you will work your way through five case studies. You will be asked to read through the case study and respond to a series of questions to consolidate your understanding. You are not required to get all of the questions correct but will be required to read sections of correct information before progressing through the e-learn module.
This course is not mandatory but is designed to help you delve into the NCCD Model by using real life examples to give you confidence in your understanding. Throughout you will be provided links to further reading as needed and given feedback to help you identify pertinent information to make informed judgements.
