Research has shown that employers and industry are key partners in work-based learning and can hinder or enhance access to VET (Atkinson, 2016). This pilot project focuses on increasing employer and industry understanding of what is involved in engaging in the work-based component of school-based VET for students with disability. It seeks to identify barriers and enhancers to both employer and student participation in work-based learning in workplaces in a regional city and strategies to address the barriers.
