Parkville College Understanding Pathways Project

Understanding Pathways for transition from detention to education and employment

The CIJ are in early stages of developing a project with Parkville College, which will examine the transitional support needs – with a focus on education, vocational and employment transitions – for young people exiting custodial environments. The project will aim to hear directly from young people in these settings and their families, to develop a detailed understanding of young people’s needs and goals as they return to the community, the effectiveness of support currently provided by Parkville College, and opportunities to strengthen support received.
