A new vision and model for alternative education options in Wyndham and Hobsons Bay
In 2012-2013 WynBay LLEN successfully secured Department of Education and Training (former Department of Education and Early Childhood Development - DEECD) Youth Partnerships support for the Youth Partnerships Alternative Education Options Project.
Seven demonstration sites were established to trial new approaches to delivering services to make sure young people receive coordinated and holistic support. Each demonstration site was governed by a local, cross sectoral committee. The demonstration sites were based on groupings of Local Government Areas. In the Western Metropolitan Region the demonstration project covered the Local Government Areas of Wyndham and Hobsons Bay.
