People with a disability welcome at Options Day in Bundaberg 

Almost one out of every five Queenslanders has a disability, so CQUniversity Bundaberg is helping to host an Options Day, encouraging prospective students and disability sector organisations to consider further education.

The event will be held between 11am-2.30pm on Friday, September 14, coinciding with Disability Action Week.

Co-organiser Elizabeth Hamilton says CQUniversity meets regularly with the regional National Disability Coordination Officer, Community Solutions, Wide Bay Institute of TAFE, and staff of the Tom Quinn Centre to discuss how services can be tailored to meet the needs of people with a disability.

"People with disabilities interested in furthering their education can find out about local qualifications from Certificate I to Bachelor degrees, and how we as education providers can meet their needs. If you or someone you know has a disability, we urge you not to miss this opportunity," Ms Hamilton says.
