Structured Workplace Learning – SWL

Structured workplace learning is on-the-job training during which a student is expected to master a set of skills or competencies related to a course accredited by the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) or the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), and undertaken as part of either the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL).

The Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) Portal has been established in conjunction with the Department of Education and Training.  This website provides school teachers and students with an easy to navigate, single information and referral point for a diverse range of high quality SWL placement opportunities. The website is searchable by industry and location. 

See the video clip produced by Goulburn Murray LLEN for an explanation of Structured Workplace Learning and how to access the SWL Online Portal to find SWL placements.
