  • Western Sydney Region Links to Learning Workshop
    • 16 th November 2011
    • Video Conference
  • Links to Learning: Overview
    • DEC funds organisations to operate creative and innovative projects that assist:
    • Early Leavers : young people who have left school before completing Year 12 or its equivalent
    • Students at Risk : students in Years 7 to 12, identified as at risk of disengaging from their education.
  • Links to Learning: Objectives
    • Links to Learning is designed to assist young people to remain engaged in their education or transition into further education, training or employment. Young people are supported through stages in a project with the following five objectives:
    • Connect – funded organisations identify appropriate young people and connect them with Links to Learning
    • Participate – young people at risk attend and participate in Links to Learning
    • Learn – young people at risk learn and improve education, employment and life skills
    • Plan – young people at risk plan for successful transition from Links to Learning into education, training or employment
    • Transition – young people at risk successfully transition from Links to Learning into their planned education, training or employment destination
  • Links to Learning: Target Group
    • Links to Learning targets two groups of young people
    • Early Leavers are young people, 17 - 24 years of age, who have left school before completing Year 12 or its vocational education and training equivalent. Early school leavers are generally not engaged in education, training or employment and may not have developed the skills to participate in a formal education or training environment.
    • Students at Risk are students enrolled in government high schools, between Years 7 and 12, who are identified by school learning support teams, student welfare committees or regional teams as being disengaged or at risk of disengaging from their school.
  • Links to Learning: New School Leaving Age
    • From 1 January 2010 , new legislation relating to school leaving age takes effect in NSW under the Education Amendment Act 2009 No 25. The legislation states that students will not be able to leave school or stop home schooling until:
    • he or she has completed Year 10 of secondary education, or
    • turned 17 (whichever occurs first.)
    • A student who has completed Year 10 and is below the age of 17 years must continue his or her schooling unless he or she participates on a full-time basis in:
    • approved education or training, or
    • paid work or a combination of approved education or training and paid work (the child must be of or above the age of 15 years to be in employment )
    • Participation in approved education or training would mean the child would be undertaking :
    • a higher education course,
    • a vocational course,
    • an apprenticeship or traineeship, or
    • any other education or training approved by the Minister
  • Links to Learning: Work Experience
    • A young person’s goals, skills and interests may be enhanced by participating in work experience relevant to their planned transition destination. Links to Learning participants may take part in supervised work experience with employers who are aware of Links to Learning objectives and outcomes and hold appropriate work experience insurance and indemnity coverage.
    • Supervised work experience should not exceed 65 hours or comprise more than a third of total participant hours and should be supported by the home school.
