Central Highlands

What we do

The Central Highlands Children and Youth Area Partnership is working to ensure that all children and young people in our area are engaged in education and are protected and nurtured, living free of violence in safe and respectful environments. 

Our vision

Our community aspiration is that all young people in the Central Highlands exit the education system at the right time and for the right reason- to enter work, further training or higher education.

We are committed to closing the unacceptable opportunity and achievment gaps for vulnerable students.

By improving education outcomes, we will provide every student with the opportunity to reach their full potenial.

We will raise the Year 12 attainment rate fom 78% to 100% by 2030.
