The roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme has created new roles and opportunities for social workers, especially those who are Accredited Disability Social Workers.
The creation of a Disability credential, recognises the specialist skills of social workers working in the disability sector, helping them access roles in within the National Disability Insurance Agency and roles funded through the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
As a result, the support social workers can provide in disability is now more accessible to the community.
Benefits of a Disability Credential
Accredited Disability Social Workers can be clearly identified by the National Disability Insurance Scheme participants as having specific skills in the disability sector.
Make a difference
By holding a Disability accreditation and being able to work in roles funded by the NDIS more of the community can benefit from your specific skills.
Accredited Disability Social Workers will have the demonstrated skills and experience to become providers across many roles funded by the NDIS.
