The IELLEN is forging ahead, with a stronger focus on school – industry partnerships. During Term 4 last year we had fruitful conversations with secondary schools on ways we could support their career-related activities. We thank all the career teachers and other school staff with whom we met. We look forward to further discussions and effective partnerships into 2020. The IELLEN will also continue other partnership work, such as education networks (e.g. for wellbeing staff and for VCAL teachers); programs for identified young people; and resource directories.
