Education is one the four key areas in which we work with our partners on projects that help young people in our area to participate in and complete year 12 at school, or equivalent training.
Our education strategies
Our education strategies, as iterated in the Central Ranges LLEN Strategic Plan 2010-2013 (and subsequent updates) include:
- working with schools, community organisations, registered training organisations and industry to increase participation and completion rates and reduce the number of early school leavers, including students with additional learning needs, through the development of partnerships, networks, programs and resources
- working towards increasing our region’s capacity to provide VETis, VCAL & ASBA (alternative to mainstream schools) programs
- implementing Hume & Loddon Mallee Regional Youth Commitment priorities on collaborative and systemic regional approaches to engagement and transition of young people
- increasing Indigenous student engagement and retention through the development of local pathways programs
