Our Leadership Tables

The Collaborative Leadership Tables provide the opportunity for the community to get on board and join the Lighthouse movement. By leveraging these community connections we strengthen our ability to help young people in Greater Shepparton thrive.

There are two Collaborative Leadership Tables: Early Years & Primary and Secondary & Transitions.  Each table is made up of approximately 20 passionate community members who are committed to leading change and improving wellbeing and educational outcomes. These Tables help drive collective decision-making and action. 

Functions of the Collaborative Leadership Tables include:

  • work within the over-arching Lighthouse strategy and within the 20-year timeframe set by Lighthouse in 2014.    
  • review data, undertake a situational analysis and create a shared understanding of the barriers and opportunities to improving life outcomes for young people at their stage of the trajectory.
  • identify measures and indicators they want to shift and set specific goals and timelines e.g. year 12 results and access to music sport and art. 
  • identify the short, medium and long-term actions they believe are required to shift the trajectories. 
  • identify the partners, skill sets, and resources needed and set timelines. 
  • lead the activities and oversee monitoring and evaluation to determine success or otherwise. 
  • continue to modify and adapt the work until they successfully shift the indicators.
