​​Investing in Regional Youth Engagement Services

As part of our commitment to re-engaging children and young people who have disengaged, we have established Regional Youth Engagement Services (RYES) in each Department of Education region. The RYES complement the role of state schools in providing safe, supportive and inclusive schools for many young Queenslanders, supporting thousands to re-engage back into school, employment or training.

A local approach

Each Regional Youth Engagement Service is designed to meet the unique geographic and demographic context of each region. Working in partnership with a range of government agencies, schools, registered training organisations, community-based organisations and other stakeholders, the RYES help young people who have become disengaged to re-engage in education, training or employment.

Practical measures

Through the Regional Youth Engagement Services, Regional Directors are responsible for leading engagement and re-engagement in their region by:

  • tracking and re-engaging children and young people who are disengaged
  • supporting mainstream schools to retain the vast majority of students
  • fostering innovation and good practice
  • allocating discretionary resources
  • building collaborative capability, including with partner agencies
  • supporting evidence-based decision-making
  • supporting transition and pathway navigation.
