Who is the portal for?

The Linking Learning portal provides the opportunity for project participants to share knowledge, solve problems, cultivate best practice and foster innovation in lead demonstration locations.

This includes a wide range of practitioners and professionals from early childhood and care services, maternal and child health, schools and local councils as well as partnering community organisations and families across the State of Victoria.

Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) regional and central office staff involved in supporting the Project will also have access to the site and will contribute useful information and resources, as well as leading experts in fields of learning who support the project.

Project Overview

The Linking Learning Birth to 12 Years Project aims to improve learning outcomes for Victorian children by supporting parents, educators, practitioners and professionals across early childhood and primary school settings to develop a comprehensive, cohesive and seamless approach to children’s learning.

A major component of the project is the establishment of eight lead demonstration and action learning locations across the State. Each will involve a partnership between early childhood service(s), primary school(s) and local council working together in innovative ways to improve children’s learning.

This project will also identify and address systemic barriers to seamless integrated learning.

The eight Linking Learning lead demonstration and action research locations will build an evidence base for effective joint approaches to learning and collaborative partnership models which can be shared across the State. The locations will take a lead role in this process by sharing their learning within a Linking Learning Communities of Practice approach.
