The Central Grampians LLEN is one of 31 LLENs across the state funded by the Victorian State Department of Education and Training. We are an incorporated association, led by a volunteer Board of Management drawn from a wide range of sectors.
Together with our community partners, the Central Grampians LLEN assists in the delivery of Structured Workplace Learning, training, mentorship, hands-on activities, youth-friendly events and other important skills development initiatives. One of the key priorities is building partnerships to support young people who are at risk of ceasing their education or have left school early.
Central Grampians LLEN Objectives:
To keep young people engaged in education and training until they have successfully completed Year 12 or its equivalent
To enhance local job pathways for young people which provide a Year 12 equivalent qualification
To facilitate transition support for early school leavers who are not in education and training
To stimulate the development of learning communities which value and encourage family participation
