Additional InformationThe Ready program is focused on building partnerships to support young people to attain Yr 12 or equivalent qualifications and reach their full educational and social potential. The program is part of a national network of Partnership Brokers. In the ACT, we have called this program: The Ready program is designed to foster a strategic, whole of community approach to improving education and transition outcomes for all young people. This is achieved through a national network of Partnership Brokers that create new partnerships and enhance existing partnerships between and among four key stakeholder groups: * Education and training providers * Business and industry * Parents and families * Community groups The Partnership Brokers assist key stakeholders to enter into partnership arrangements that will enrich the learning experience for young people leading to improved levels of participation, engagement and attainment. These partnerships harness resources and build local infrastructure to support communities to share responsibility for young people's learning and development. The Partnership Brokers work with key stakeholders to identify the needs of their region, help partners to agree on how they can work together towards a common purpose, and support partnerships to achieve their goals. Communication The Ready team is committed to strong communication with Chamber members, schools and community organisations. As such, we produce a weekly e-newsletter called the Careers Digest. The Careers Digest provides the education sector with up-to-date information on events and other news in the education world. If you would like to receive the Careers Digest, please email Sarah Kentwell on sarah.kentwell@actchamber.com.au
