Local Learning and Employment Networks

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.

In Melbourne's west there are three LLENs:

The LLENs in Melbourne's west are part of a network of 31 LLENs across Victoria. The goal of each LLEN is to support young people, 10 – 19 years old, within its geographical boundaries by improving their participation, engagement, attainment and transition outcomes.

LLENs have a particular focus on young people at risk of disengaging, or who have already disengaged, from education and training and are not in meaningful employment.

Each LLEN creates strategic, sustainable partnerships that improve education and transition outcomes for young people, including increasing Year 12 or equivalent attainment rates.

LLENs use their knowledge of the region to influence strategic planning and broker partnerships among key stakeholders to support young people to remain engaged, or re-engage, in education or training.
