Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) is on-the-job training that allows school students to develop their work skills and understand employer expectations. SWL is available to Victorian school students undertaking a Vocational Education and Training (VET) program as part of their VCE or VCAL studies, including School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATs).
While students are on work placement, they are undergoing vocational education and training with a registered training provider which enables them to gain qualifications and specific skills to help them in the workplace.
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.
The SWL program has developed resources to assist with workplace learning.
The Wimmera Southern Mallee LLEN has published an Employer Guide which is provided free of charge to employers hosting a workplace student.
For your FREE copy of the employer guide please contact the Structured Workplace Learning Coordinator at Wimmera Southern Mallee LLEN.
Download the Employers Guide here.
The SWL program has developed log books for students in a Structured Workplace Learning setting to keep a record of activities conducted during the work placement.
Log Books will be supplied free of charge at the commencement of the school year to schools in the Wimmera Southern Mallee region. Log books are available to schools beyond the Wimmera Southern Mallee LLEN region for a small cost. Please contact the SWL Coordinator to order copies for your school.
The Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) Coordinator can assist schools with information and support to find work placements for students.
