CODE 1  Yes

Use if a person's ability to participate in school or another educational institution is restricted.

CODE 2  No

Use if a person's ability to participate in school or another educational institution is not restricted.

Participation in education is defined as the ability to take part in activities and tasks or take actions to perform at school or another educational institution (such as TAFE, university, or skills centre). Participation in education is considered to be affected if a person:

  • is attending a special school/institution or special class, or
  • needs special support or equipment to learn, or
  • needs special access or transport arrangements, or
  • needs special assessment procedures, or
  • frequently needs time off (one day per week or more), or
  • is unable to attend school/institution full-time or at all.

The nature of the restriction may differ across early childhood, primary, secondary education, tertiary and vocational education.

Collection methods:Help on this term

This data element is applicable to all prisoners, irrespective of actual attendance and/or enrolment at any educational institution. The concept focuses on restrictions affecting a respondent’s ability to participate in education. Prior to asking the question, explain that the question is asked in the context of a long-term condition or disability that has lasted, or is expected to last, 6 months or more.

Question:

Does a long term-term health condition or disability affect your participation in education?
