Building a brighter future for Young People
Gateway Local Learning and Employment Network (LLEN) is one 31 Victorian LLENs. The goal of the LLENs is to improve post compulsory education and training opportunities in Victoria. Gateway LLEN encompasses the local government areas of Whitehorse, Manningham and Monash and works with key stakeholders within these communities.
Since its inception in 2002, Gateway LLEN has facilitated and implemented a number of programs that support 10 – 19 year olds to engage in education and training. The initiatives tend to focus on ‘at risk’ youth and aim to increase their engagement in relevant and practical learning opportunities that lead to a supported transition through education, training and onto employment.
What challenges do we set for Gateway LLEN?
- To demonstrate that we are achieving tangible, sustained and measurable improvement to young people’s education and training outcomes.
- To forge stronger and more effective relationships between education and training providers and local communities.
- To develop strong links with industry, to ensure our education and training system meets both its needs and those of young people.
- To be involved in partnerships in the delivery of every aspect of our strategic plan.
Gateway LLEN Mission Statement
