The final Northern SBAT Network Meeting for 2019 was held today! There was lots of robust discussion and sharing between the members, including an overview of Northern Melbourne vocational/ industry enrolment numbers for 2018.

A representative from the VCAA reported an increase of 10% in SBATs across the state, from previous years! Keep up the great work Victoria!

There was an overwhelming consensus by members to continue with the network in 2020. BNLLEN will ensure the dates are circulated in due course. Thanks #McDonalds for hosting us, we hope to be back next year!

Banyule and Nillumbik Real Industry Job Interviews (RIJI)
• Do you remember your first job interview?
• Were you nervous?
• Did you stumble over your answers and wish you had some help beforehand?
• Could you spare a half day to help a student from a local school with a mock interview?

The Banyule and Nillumbik Real Industry Job Interviews (RIJI) is a local community partnership that aims to support local secondary school students to build their work readiness skills and career development abilities. We need your help! We require local, business and community volunteers to participate as interviewers for this program. We currently have 500 students registered who would greatly benefit from your effort and knowledge to provide a mock interview experience for them that is structured and scheduled.

The two forthcoming event dates are on Thursday 17th October from 8.30am – 1pm (in Nillumbik) or Thursday 24th October from 8.30am – 1pm (in Banyule). If you are interested to be involved or would like to find out more, please contact Meri Ivanovska on 0409 547 034 or at

Last Wednesday Tiziana Gillion our Working Community Project Officer attended the Stories from my Life celebration with Melbourne Polytechnic VCAL students and the residents of Estia Health Heidelberg.
It was a great morning and the residents enjoyed the connection and visits from the young people while participating in the program. A great program connecting our young people with the older generation.
