We build partnerships to create education, training and employment experiences for ALL young people

South Gippsland Bass Coast Local Learning & Employment Network Inc (SGBCLLEN) is managed by a Board of Management elected by its membership.   SGBCLLEN is also a registered charitable organisation.

SGBCLLEN works closely with schools, training organisations, education networks, local business, industry and the wider community to build connections and partnerships in providing educational and employment outcomes for young people.

Our aim is to broker sustainable partnerships that support learning and identify and develop options for young people in South Gippsland and Bass Coast.

We do this in collaboration with our stakeholders by developing and implementing innovative and engaging projects and pathways for young people.
