Strategic Plan 2021 - 2024

This strategy focuses on improving transitions to education, training and employment to ensure every young person, no matter their circumstances, can thrive and be the best version of themselves.

Our Vision

"Our vision is that all youth in our communities are successfully engaged in education, training and employment."

Our Mission

Many young people are not making a successful transition from school to work due to barriers they face along the way.

In 2016 in our region:

  • 7% of young people aged 15 to 19 (408) were not in school or employment, reducing their lifetime income by 10% for every year left early
  • 20% of young people aged 20 to 24 (957) were not in education or employment, missing the period for developing a base of experience that is imperative to secure a successful career
  • Shepparton in our region is the 7th highest youth unemployment hotspot in Australia with a rate of 18%

And yet, jobs in our region are increasing, with the fastest growing industries being construction, agriculture, health care and social assistance and manufacturing. Opportunities are there for our young people.

This strategy focuses on improving transitions to education, training and employment to ensure every young person, no matter their circumstance, can thrive and be the best version of themselves.
