Central Ranges LLEN aims to help local young people to connect with relevant and high-quality education, training and employment opportunities. We do that by working closely with service providers, schools, government authorities and agencies. We facilitate, negotiate and identify opportunities for funding, partnerships, tools and resources, programs and infrastructure.
Our work is targeted in four areas – industry, community, education and parents.
Industry projects and partnerships
Our industry programs are worked out in collaboration with local businesses, schools and training providers to help students to find out about working in different local industries. Read more about our work with industry
