SWL Portal - Finding Work Placement

Structured Workplace Learning is a key feature of VET programs. All students are encouraged to complete a minimum of one
week (40 hours) work placement in a related industry, however, the number of hours will vary depending on the course. This will
enhance their learning and prospects of attaining an apprenticeship or entry into further training.
Structured Workplace Learning may involve an employer accepting a student on a one-day-a-week basis or a one-week block.
Structured Workplace Learning enables the student to demonstrate acquired skills and knowledge in an industry setting. During
the work placement, a student will undertake tasks to build on their skills and knowledge and complete a log book of tasks
undertaken.
The SWL online portal lists local and state-wide work placement opportunities. Students can search the portal by region, indus-
try or course to find an appropriate work placement.
