Recognising and Reconceptualising Ability: Reflections on Disability and Employability
With almost 20% of all Australians identifying as having a disability and/or medical or mental health condition (ABS, 2019), the rate of students with a disability in Australian higher education has increased, representing an estimated 7.7% of all students in 2019 (NCSEHE, 2020). Yet despite increasing participation, research findings continue to evidence lower rates of retention, success, and completion for students with a disability (Kilpatrick et al., 2017; Pitman, 2022). Particularly troublesome are also findings that highlight the significant barriers students with a disability face in the employment market, often relating to a lack of work experience or employability (Eckstein, 2022; QILT, 2020).
