Committee For Echuca Moama wants more tertiary education options for young people.
The committee will discuss increasing opportunities at an education forum in Echuca tomorrow.
C4EM chief executive officer Hayden Cock said the forum would focus on identifying the challenges, opportunities and actions needed to improve and better co-ordinate the specific education needs of Echuca-Moama.
C4EM recently launched its inaugural strategic plan which identified promoting education and employment initiatives as one of its six strategic ‘platforms’.
The organisation will undertake a gap analysis to improve vocational and tertiary education training opportunities in Echuca-Moama, including skills-based programs.
C4EM will also advocate for improved indigenous education and employment opportunities and investigate the feasibility of creating a centralised education hub in Echuca-Moama.
Mr Cock said the purpose of the education hub was for people to study locally.
‘‘The forum will explore these priority initiatives and work through how we can turn this vision into reality,’’ Mr Cock said.
‘‘And in particular, gather the collective insights and expertise of key people involved in the education sector in our region.’’
The forum will be attended by a broad cross-section of district education leaders, including representatives from northern region Bendigo TAFE, Campaspe Cohuna Local Learning and Employment Network, principals and career teachers from Echuca-Moama primary and secondary schools, Campaspe College of Adult Education, Mirrimbeena Aboriginal Education Group, Campaspe Cohuna Youth Connections, Skills Victoria, Federal Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations and Echuca Police.
The forum will be chaired by St Joseph’s College principal and C4EM board member Kate Fogarty and will be run in partnership with Campaspe Cohuna Local Learning and Employment Network.
It will be held at Bendigo Tafe, Echuca.
