New mandatory course explains obligations to NDIS support workers
A Worker Orientation Module called ‘Quality, Safety and You’ will assist all NDIS workers to better support people with disability.
This module is an interactive online course that explains the obligations of workers under the NDIS Code of Conduct – from the perspective of NDIS participants. It was developed in consultation with the sector, including NDIS providers and people with a disability.
It will be mandatory for all registered NDIS providers under the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission to embed the module within their induction and learning programs and provide opportunities for workers to complete the module over time.
During the module, workers are encouraged to consider and respond to different scenarios in the context of supporting a person with disability. On completion of the module, workers will have an understanding of the role of the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission and their roles and responsibilities under the Code of Conduct including: human rights, respect and risk.
