The NCCD Guidelines are the ‘Ministerial Council disability guidelines (for a year)’ prepared for the purposes of section 58A of the Australian Education Regulation 2013. They are the authoritative guide to the NCCD and should be referred to when technical information and advice are required.
Where there is doubt on the applicability of the Quick Guide or any conflict between the Quick Guide and the Guidelines, the Guidelines take precedence.
School teams may prefer to use the Quick Guide to implement the NCCD, but should always refer to the Guidelines as the authoritative source.
The Australian Government Department of Education engaged all state and territory departments of education, the National Catholic Education Commission and Independent Schools Australia to provide input into this update of the Guidelines.
