Teachers will be able to access professional learning modules, podcasts, and other resources for self-directed and blended learning through the portal, together with videos, infographics and parent information.

Education Minister Dan Tehan said the portal gives advice and guidance on ensuring students with disability are given every opportunity to learn and succeed.

The interactive portal will have information for teachers about how to complete the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD), the Disability Standards for Education 2005 and the adjustments provided to support students with disability in their learning, as well as referrals to other services and disability assistance.
