An important part of our work is to partner with local business and industry to improve pathways and transition opportunities for local students into identified areas of skill shortage.
Our industry strategies
The Central Ranges LLEN Strategic Plan 2010-2013 outlines our priority work and strategies with industry and business as:
- working with local government and industry networks and associations to identify skill shortage areas and increase training opportunities, especially in bushfire affected regions
- facilitating partnerships between schools and major employers within the Central Ranges region to create career, training and pathways programs in identified skill shortage areas, especially health and community, hospitality and building and construction
- developing partnerships between schools, industries, group training and workplace learning co-ordinators to expand school-based apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities within the region.
