The Inner Northern Local Learning and Employment Network (INLLEN) is an independent community organisation creating strategies to support young people across Darebin, Merri-bek and Yarra.

INLLEN’s vision is for all young people to transition successfully from education to employment. We are primarily focused on vulnerable young people who are disengaged, or at risk of disengaging from education and training. With a variety of complex social factors contributing to disengagement, we believe that a collective whole-of-community response is the most valuable approach to achieve improvement.

INLLEN is incorporated and governed by a Committee of Management which is made up of a range of people from industry, government, education and training providers, and the local community.

What is a LLEN?

A Local Learning and Employment Network is a collective of schools, education and community provides and business/industry with the goal to support young people, 10 – 19 years old within a shared region. Their areas of interest include all matters that effect the education, employment and training outcomes of young people; as well as information on community building and networking approaches. The LLEN model was created in 2001, currently there are 31 Local Learning and Employment Networks or LLENs in Victoria. Find out more

INLLEN is currently funded by the Victorian Department of Education and Training.
