Partnerships and Information
Parents and families play a pivotal role in the education and development of young people.
The Capital City LLEN builds partnerships that enhance the capacity of parents and families to support young people to engage in education and training and make information decisions about their future.

The Capital City LLEN builds partnerships that enhance the capacity of parents and families to support young people by:
- Make links between learning and career aspirations
- Access supportive networks and services to help the young person in future career direction
- Support parents and family during transition stages of the young persons' life
- Be better informed about the diverse range of education, training and employment options available to the young person.

In partnership with members of the City of Melbourne's OFC network the LLEN supports and contributes to a range of initiatives that link parents and families with learning and career aspirations. Examples include:
- Family Literacy project - supporting parents of Carlton Primary school students to enhance the literacy of the refugee/migrant parent population and train them in IT so they can support the literacy of their students
- Carlton Digital Inclusion Project (COOL) - a range of inclusive training and access programs for residents of public housing in Carlton to facilitate greater engagement, employment and learning opportunities for young people and parents and families
Secondary School Parent Forums
In partnership with external training and community organisations we provide a range of forums for parents of at risk secondary school students in Year 10 and 11 aimed at retention and successful transitions
Tertiary Aspirations Forum
Together with our partners we are delivering a series of events aimed at parents and families who have never had anyone within their family go to University before. Culturally appropriate and sensitive to the concerns and issues impacting low SES families these initiatives are designed to empower, inform, and inspire.
The Capital City LLEN welcomes contact from parent and family organisations to develop and implement new partnerships.
