Imagineering Plus Program

Imagineering Plus, with the HWLLEN, is a program funded by the Victorian State Government Empowering Communities Initiative as part of the Building Safer Communities Program. The program hopes to inspire Primary students in grade 5 & 6 to dream big and think about their career pathways and the future of work. The Program incorporates 6 Modules that can be tailored to the needs of the student, teachers & schools. Modules have been integrated into the school curriculum and timelines can be discussed on an individual basis. The 6 modules include, Self-Reflection, Career Networking, Guest Speakers, Excursions, Presentations to celebrate their learning and experiences gained from previous modules, and finally, Module 6, Wellbeing and/or Transition.

The purpose of the program is to broaden the career aspirations of students and their families, encourage young people to stay engaged at school, expose family members to education opportunities never experienced before and provide direct links and wellbeing support to those at risk of disengaging.

The program will support students and their families to be more engaged with education, re-ignite their passion for learning, expose them to future possibilities and pathways they may have never considered and assist in the transition to secondary school for those who have begun to lose a sense of why they are attending school. HWLLEN are excited at the opportunity to run such a wonderful program for young people.

Whittlesea Invigor8ing Education program

This program offers students a choice of engaging in either a Trades or Community/Leisure experience with industry specialists and are guided by qualified youth workers in a supportive environment:

  • Community/Leisure

Students have access to a variety of workplace environments within Epping Leisure City. Students gain experience in Hospitality (café and reception desk), Sport and Recreation (swimming pool, gymnastics and sports centre) and Childcare (creche). (10 students per semester)

  • Trades

Students gain experience in a range of trade skills as they engage with qualified trainers at Melbourne Polytechnic Epping Campus. Trades can include Carpentry and/or Painting & Decorating. Trade tasters in a variety of courses are available across the Melbourne Polytechnic campuses. (10 students per semester)


Semester 1 of each year engages students from the schools in the southern region of the Whittlesea LGA (20 students) and semester 2 engages students from schools in the northern region of the LGA. (20 students)


The core aim for both streams revolves around supporting the students to return to school to reengage with education. Invigor8ing Education sets up all participants for success by giving them a clearer view of where school could eventually lead them.
