About the LLEN program

The Local Learning and Employment Networks (LLEN) program is a Victorian Government initiative that assists young people at risk of making poor transitions from compulsory schooling to the next stage of their lives and careers.
There are 31 LLENS in the network, each of which works to bring together education providers, industry, community, individual and government organisations to improve education, training and employment outcomes for young people in communities across Victoria.
LLENs are managed by the Pathways Participation and Youth Division of the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood. To find out more go to Local Learning and Employment Networks.
