WynBay Regions

LLEN Boundaries

The 31 LLENs cover all areas of the State of Victoria. LLEN boundaries usually cover more than one Local Government Area (LGA) and are generally contained within an individual Department of Education and Training (DET) Region.

LLEN boundaries were originally determined by factors including:

  • a clear local community of interest;
  • LGA boundaries;
  • size of target population;
  • DET Regional boundaries;
  • DET school cluster/network boundaries; and
  • other cluster and service provider boundaries.

Any change in LLEN boundaries must be agreed by all of the LLENs affected and DET, and must ensure state wide coverage is maintained.
