Education & Training

The Central Ranges LLEN has helped to establish and continues to work with local education and training networks. We support careers coordinators and education providers, enable investment in training programs, and the creation of opportunities for young people to continue in education, enter training or gain employment.

The education and training networks with which we are involved include:

Mitchell & Murrindindi region

Lower Hume VET and Pathways Cluster

This network is a partnership between 9 senior secondary schools, including a regional special school, and the Central Ranges LLEN.  All are located in the Mitchell, Murrindindi, Strathbogie shires and Whittlesea areas. Participating members are from government and Catholic education sectors.

Youth Training Pathways Network

This network looks to share and develop training opportunities for young people aged 15 – 21 years, many of which are no longer in or have disengaged from mainstream school. Training providers, Job Service, Disability Service, Youth Service, Schools, Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and Department of Human Services agencies are welcome to attend.

Central Ranges VCAL Network

The purpose of this network is to bring together and provide mutual support to VCAL providers in the Central Ranges LLEN area. The group is an avenue for professional discussion, information and resource sharing as well as providing an opportunity for collaborative planning. Covers both Mitchell & Murrindindi Shires and Macedon Ranges.

Macedon Ranges region

Macedon Ranges VET Cluster

This cluster allows for schools to undertake shared VET subjects on a selected day, increasing the VET curriculum offering for students, reducing duplication of resources and enhancing partnerships with local Industry and Registered Training Organisations.

YAMMER

Yammer is a social network for businesses and companies; this means that unlike other social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter, which are designed for public use, Yammer is designed for private communication for members.

It allows everyone to share information more freely and create more opportunities to collaborate together online to strengthen the provision of education and training across our region.
