A career in Disability is a rewarding one. Members of the Disability workforce strive to support people to reach their full potential. 

The Disability workforce is one of the fastest-growing workforce segments. Whether you are still at school, wanting to get back into the workforce after a gap, or looking for more meaningful work, we want you. If you are a caring person, you can have a life-long and fulfilling career. That's not to mention flexible and secure as well.

People with disability often require life-long support so they will choose and have life-long relationships with a wide range of disability practitioners.

There are incredible opportunities to grow your skills and specialise as an interdisciplinary practitioner that delivers person-centred supports. You might also choose to set up a business to be a Disability Practitioner as a Sole Trader. 

The disability sector offers incredibly diverse roles and work opportunities. Whether you are just starting out or poised to take the next step, you're in the right place! National Disability Practitioners (NDP) works to develop a capable, professional, and engaged disability workforce. NDP will help you get you started, keep you informed and connected to the workforce community, and support you at all stages of your career.
