Disability and social inclusion technical advice for the Kiribati Facility
The Nossal Institute for Global Health is providing technical advice on disability and gender inclusion strategy for the Kiribati Facility (KF) as part of the Australian Governments Pacific aid program. The Kiribati Facility (KF) is the overarching program that encompasses the Skills for Employment Program (SfEP), and the Flexible Support Facility (FSF). The SfEP aims to develop the Kiribati Institute of Technology (KIT) as a demand-driven training provider catering for domestic, regional and international labor markets. The KF under the management of Scope Global is a three and a half year program, which commenced in 2016 and will complete in March 2020. The Nossal Institute is developing and supporting implementation of a:
- Disability Support Plan to increase participation of people with disabilities in the courses and programs provided by KIT, through the development and implementation of appropriate actions to support access by individuals with disabilities. This Disability Support Plan outlines strategies to support the inclusion of people with disabilities within the SfEP and the programs relevant to KIT.
- Community Support Strategy to increase the participation of young women, men and disadvantaged groups in skills development programs, as well as strengthening the institutional focus on social inclusion to ensure women and men, and disadvantaged groups are supported in their learning at KIT.
