Inclusive Education and Employment Fact Sheets

Community Resource Unit Ltd (CRU) are excited to share two new resources to assist people with disabilities and their families, in their thinking on Inclusive Education and Employment. Fact sheets have been developed by CRU with Community Services Industry Alliance (CSIA) and National Disability Services (NDS) through the Inclusion Ready project funded by the Queensland Government. 

The Employment fact sheets have been developed to help young people with disability get their first job. Getting a part time job in high school is a common rite of passage that enriches the lives of many young people.  As well as getting spending money, having a job opens up opportunities for friendship, skill development and life experience.  The value of this experience is equally important for young people with disability but it can require some extra thinking and planning, as outlined in the fact sheets. Click here to access the fact sheets.
