The South East Local Learning and Employment Network (South East LLEN) is a community managed regional network made up of local organisations in Melbourne’s South East, interested in working to give 10 to 19 year olds a better go at successfully moving through the education system to employment.
Our network membership includes approximately 250 members, including organisations such as schools, TAFE’s, local businesses and youth welfare agencies, as well as individuals.
We DO NOT charge young people or our members any fees or try to sell them anything.
We DO work with our network members to develop sustainable partnerships between education providers, business and industry, community groups and parents and families that will benefit student participation, retention, attainment and transition.
The South East LLEN is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership of the network. The Board of Directors is made up of one representative from each of the membership categories plus 5 co-opted positions. Half of the 10 elected Board positions are renewed at the Annual General Meeting of the Association (usually held in May each year) and the co-opted positions are reviewed annually by the Board and renewed at the discretion of the Board. The current Chairperson of the South East Local Learning and Employment Network is Mrs Sara Edwards.
Established in 2001 as a result of a recommendation form the Kirby Report, the South East Local Learning and Employment Network (South East LLEN) was developed to bring together educators, employers, industry, welfare agencies, local government and non-government organisations.
The core objective of a LLEN is to improve participation, engagement, attainment and transition outcomes for young people 10 to 19 years old within its geographic boundaries.
