SGBCLLEN supports young people to stay connected with community, education and employment

How do we do it?

We broker sustainable partnerships that support learning, identify and develop options for young people that are at risk of disengagement from education and employment. We have particular focus on supporting students to complete year 12 or equivalent.

This local service provides job-seekers and employers with a one-stop-listing of job advertisements from Gippsland to South East NSW. It allows employers to advertise vacancies for free and job-seekers can use the platform to receive local job alerts, create a resume, keep up to date with education and training opportunities and also share information via social media.

Looking for Support Services?

Gippsland Youth Services Directory

Gippsland Youth Services Directory was developed by the three Gippsland LLENs to ensure that young people and their families have instant access to youth and family services information in Gippsland. The directory lists many support services in areas such as health, drug and alcohol, domestic violence, housing, bullying, legal advice and many more. Organisations can upload their own information and service providers can ustilise the directory to assist clients. LLENs are dedicated to ensuring a happy, healthy and safe environment for all youth in our community, especially those at risk of disengagement.

LLEN’s are committed to ensuring that secondary students have the opportunity to develop workplace skills and experience whilst exploring careers through the Structure Workplace Learning (SWL) program.

The program supports students who are enrolled in a Vocational Education and Training (VET) course by exposing them to the real world of work.
