LOOKOUT Youth Justice Advisor - Full Time/Fixed Term until 30 June 2022

The LOOKOUT Education Support Centre (LOOKOUT Centre) is a virtual setting that performs a critical advocacy, support and entitlement function by securing the rights and best outcomes for children and young people in out-of-home care within our existing educational system.

LOOKOUT Centres aim to lift the educational outcomes and wellbeing of children and young people in statutory out-of-home care and permanent care by:

  • Raising the profile of the 2018 Out-of-Home Care Education Commitment: Partnering Agreement (Partnering Agreement) and awareness of the importance of the actions and support contained in the agreement among those working with the child or young person
  • Improving monitoring and reporting on children and young people in out-of-home Care
  • Building the capacity of the workforces supporting children and  young people in out-of-home (e.g. Designated Teachers and Case Managers) to understand their needs, and to help them stay engaged and supported at school
  • Strengthening relationships between the service systems at a local and central level to improve collaboration and enable child centered decisions and effective case planning.
  • LOOKOUT Centres are:
  • Not physical structures and do not deliver curriculum. LOOKOUT Centre staff are based in regional and area offices of the Department - working with schools, Case Managers, Care Managers and carers across their region
  • Led by experienced school principals and are staffed by multidisciplinary teams of education specialists, allied health professionals, Koorie Cultural Advisers and data and administration officers.
  • Operate in partnership with regional and Area-based staff, drawing on the collective effort of school improvement and wellbeing teams to raise the achievement and expectations of children and young people in care.
