Making education and training work for young people

The Inner Eastern Local Learning and Employment Network (IELLEN) is a not-for-profit, incorporated organisation, and we gratefully acknowledge the Victorian Government for funding, provided through the Department of Education and Training.

The IELLEN works to improve education, training and employment options and outcomes for young people, especially for those who live, study or are connected to any of the three LGAs of Stonnington, Port Phillip, Boroondara. To achieve these aims the IELLEN implements a range of strategies – brokering and supporting networks, partnerships and projects.

In 2015 we led, facilitated - or actively supported - a total of 18 partnerships, networks, projects, committees or groups.

Making an impact

Through engagement with stakeholders, and leading or supporting these partnerships, networks, projects and committees, we 

  • provide or share ideas, information, knowledge, resources, expertise
  • influence thinking or raise awareness regarding issues around young people's wellbeing and education
  • facilitate access to people, organisations, services
  • link up professionals within and across sectors
  • publicly recognise the achievements of young people, organisations and employers annually, and
  • directly or indirectly educate or assist hundreds, if not thousands of young people.

Aside from the partnerships, networks, projects, committees or groups we lead or support (see our 2015 Annual Report), the IELLEN has an increasing reach through social media, and other media forms, including publications:

  • Our reach through social media platforms during 2015 was 10,500+ and is increasing in 2016
  • Our e2e Discussion Paper (launched mid 2015) has had more than 2,600 views on Australian Policy Online, and was one of the Top Ten viewed education publications of 2015
  • The IELLEN's "Fire Up!" Transition DVD has had more than 700 views on the video-sharing website
  • And our "Seen Heard, Celebrated" film (uploaded late April 2016) has so far been viewed more than 300 times, for example on youtube.
