The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data (NCCD) on School Students with Disability

The Australian Education Regulation 2013 (the Regulation) requires the operators of all government and non-government schools that receive Australian Government funding to provide information to the Australian Government Department of Education and Training for the purposes of the NCCD.

The information will not explicitly identify individual students.

The information that approved authorities must give to the Department includes, in relation to each student with a disability:

  • the student's level of education (i.e. primary or secondary)
  • the student's category of disability (i.e. physical, cognitive, sensory or social/emotional)
  • the student's level of adjustment (i.e. support provided within quality differentiated teaching practice, supplementary, substantial or extensive adjustment).
