The inclusive practice resources include overviews and training modules, and support providers to implement inclusive learning. The Inclusive Learning Framework is the Queensland response to the National Equity Blueprint. See below for more information.
The resources are best viewed using Internet Explorer 9, Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome browsers.

The former National VET Equity Advisory Committee's Equity Blueprint was presented to the Ministerial Council in March 2011. The Blueprint sets out the agreed national policy direction for disadvantaged learners across the vocational education and training (VET) sector, for five years from 2011 to 2016, through six reform areas:
- adopting a sustainable investment approach to funding VET
- measuring and reporting performance in terms of how the system deals with those who experience disadvantage
- building the capability of the VET workforce
- embedding support for foundation skills development
- embedding pathway planning and partnerships as part of the VET system
- listening to the voice of the learner when designing the VET system and continuously improving its services.
