Brimbank Melton Local Learning and Employment Network
Local Learning and Employment Networks (LLENs) have operated from 2002 to connect employers, education and training providers, government groups, agencies and individuals to help turn business and community needs and ideas into new and innovative programs for young people.
The Brimbank Melton LLEN takes a ‘partnership brokering’ approach, collaborating with organisations working with young people, such as schools, business, community agencies, government agencies, registered training organisations, TAFEs and Universities, to make sure that all young people in Brimbank and Melton have opportunities to forge independent and positive lives.
Brimbank Melton LLEN works to improve school retention and educational outcomes for young people with particular focus on identified disadvantaged groups.
Brimbank Melton LLEN is working to improve student engagement in Years 5 & 6 of primary schools for successful transition to Year 7 in secondary schools. A key component of this is the engagement of families in supporting students at risk of disengaging.
Brimbank Melton LLEN is also working with schools, local government, industry bodies and community agencies to identify a comprehensive approach to developing the employability skills of young people in school or who have left school before completing Year 12.
Brimbank Melton LLEN also works with partners such as Youth Connections and YouthNow (also one of LeadWest's affiliates), as well as with service provider networks to broker effective support services for disadvantaged young people.
