STEPS set to feature in conference exploring innovation in disability employment
A few of our staff are heading to Sydney this month to represent STEPS Group Australia at the 2018 Disability at Work: The Next Frontier Conference.
Held over two days, this year’s conference will explore innovation within disability employment and diverse ways to engage and activate people with a disability on their pathway to employment.
STEPS Group Australia has been selected to participate in the conference and speak about STEPS Pathways College’s innovative learning model.
Both our Executive Manager of Community Services Kerry Staines and our Executive Officer Stuart Coward will be presenting in a session that explores the topic of being work ready.
Kerry and Stuart will be introducing the principles that underpin our innovative learning program STEPS Pathways College to industry and community leaders.
Kerry said presenting the college’s learning model to other providers and professionals at the conference is a fantastic opportunity for STEPS Group Australia.
“It’s exciting to be recognised as an organisation that is leading innovation within the disability sector.
“As a for-purpose organisation, we hope to stimulate change and create greater opportunity for people with a disability and we are so pleased to be able to share our program with others.
“It’s so valuable to be able to attend industry conferences like Disability at Work and be in an environment where we can share our work and ideas with others and also be able to further our thinking in some areas.”
The 2018 Disability at Work Conference will be held on 14th – 15th June.
