Structured workplace learning

 

If you are doing a VCE VET program, structured workplace learning gives you the opportunity to get on-the-job training where you can master the skills and knowledge of your qualification.

In some VCE VET programs, structured workplace learning is compulsory. For all other VCE VET programs, structured workplace learning is highly recommended.

Structured workplace learning recognition

If you undertake structured workplace learning in a workplace related to your VCE VET program, you can gain additional credit towards your VCE or VCAL by completing the workplace learning record.

The workplace learning record allows you to record your experience and reflect on what you have learned in the workplace.
