All Education Ministers from Commonwealth, state and territory governments endorsed the implementation of a Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD) in all Australian schools (government, independent and Catholic).
The nationally consistent approach to data collection provides all Australian schools, education authorities and the community with a clear picture of the number of students receiving adjustments because of disability in schools, and the adjustments they are provided to enable them to participate in education on the same basis as other students.
The information collected as part of the NCCD includes:
the student's year of schooling,
the student's category of disability, and
the student's level of adjustment.
Further information about the NCCD can be found on the following fact sheets:
