Who we are

IMVC is committed to the social inclusion of young and marginalised people, and is passionate about providing opportunities for the wider community, especially at-risk youth, to enhance capabilities and opportunities in applied learning, vocational education, training and employment.

Established in 1998, the Inner Melbourne VET Cluster (IMVC) is a not for profit Incorporated Association at the forefront of developing best-practice initiatives and programs to best serve the needs of marginalised communities – providing youth services (case management and re-engagement programs), education, training and employment pathways initiatives.

We provide quality professional development services, training, and industry engagement opportunities to address the needs of marginalised cohorts including: youth with disability, at risk/ disengaged youth, refugees, LGBTI and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities.

We develop programs with the aim to address and support access to a diverse set of opportunities to explore career options, enhance employability skills, and to provide endless opportunities for all to fulfil their economic and social participation.

Delivering services across Inner North, East and Western Melbourne, IMVC is well regarded amongst schools, government, industry and the broader community; cooperatively and creatively working with these agencies to achieve real outcomes and seamless transitions for our participants.

  • Learn – participate in education and training;
  • Work – participate in employment, unpaid or voluntary work; and
  • Engage – connect with people and community.
