About the Network
This network is for career and transition staff, leading teachers and anyone else interested from specialist schools in the North and West metropolitan region of Melbourne. The members come together to share information and resources to support young people with disabilities to pursue post school options that include further education and training, employment and leisure based activities in their local community.
The August 2017 meeting was held in the Shire of Melton at the Taylor’s Hill Community Centre. The day was filled with a range of presentations that included information related to preparing students for the world of work by Daniel Grech from Apprenticeships Matter. Yooralla presented to the range of new and innovative programs based in Melbourne City and Glenroy as post school options and former Councillor of Darebin City Council, Oliver Walsh in partnership with CTS presented on a new work experience program that will available for students from specialist schools in Term 4.
In the afternoon, the CTS facilitated the second part of Developing School Community Partnerships: Partnership 102 with the network members. At the next meeting in November, the second part of Developing a Parent and Family Engagement Strategy will be delivered in the afternoon.
