Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) occurs when a senior secondary student gets an opportunity to work with an employer to develop a set of skills or competencies. Students who do SWL may be undertaking the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) or Vocational Education and Training delivered in schools.
State Government funded SWL Service
From 2016, the 31 Local Learning & Employment Networks, LLENs, across Victoria have been funded to facilitate state-wide access to quality workplace learning opportunities. The state-wide SWL portal provides a single, easy to navigate information and referral point for SWL opportunities across various programs.
Students of or over 15 years of age who are undertaking a VCE VET program or VCAL are able to access workplace learning opportunities that align with their studies.
