Among the recommendations of A Strategy for Equality, the 1996 Report of the Commission on the status of People with Disabilities, was a call for reform at national level of the administration of services providing training and employment for people with disabilities. A comprehensive reform of the National Rehabilitation Board (NRB) and the setting up of both a National Disability Authority (NDA) and a Disability Support Service were advocated. The setting up of the Establishment Group (1997) indicated a commitment to these recommendations. This article aims to explain the comprehensive changes underway in the administration and monitoring of training and employment services for people with disabilities.
