Established in 2002, Glenelg and Southern Grampians Local Learning and Employment Network (GSG LLEN) is committed to improving education, training and employment outcomes for young people 15 – 19 years of age.

We are a strategic networking organisation that brokers partnerships for and between:

  • education and training providers,
  • businesses and industry,
  • community organisations,
  • parents and families.

As a partnership broker, the GSG LLEN’s role is to “broker sustainable strategic partnerships between and among key stakeholders to improve education and transition outcomes and support young people to remain engaged or re-engage in education and training.”

The Glenelg & Southern Grampians Local Learning & Employment Network is a Child Safe organisation. All children and young people who come into contact with GSG LLEN have a right to feel and be safe. The welfare of the children and young people in contact with the organisation will always be our first priority and we have a zero tolerance to child abuse.  We aim to create a child friendly environment where young people feel safe.

Structured Workplace Learning
At the start of 2016, the GSG LLEN was funded to facilitate student access to structured workplace learning placements which are tailored to local priorities and employment opportunities.
We have two Structured Work Placement Officers whose roles involve developing new opportunities for vulnerable students to engage in workplace learning opportunities such as Structured Workplace Learning and School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships.  Their particular focus is finding placements for Indigenous students, students with a disability, and students at risk of leaving education training early, in addition to hard to place industries.
