† Scored program

Structured workplace learning

Structured workplace learning (SWL) can be a valuable component of VET qualifications undertaken by VCE or VCAL students. SWL is on-the-job training that allows students to develop their work skills and understand employer expectations. It complements the training undertaken at the school or provider and should be spread across the duration of the training program. It provides context for:

  • enhancement of skills development
  • practical application of industry knowledge
  • assessment of units of competency/modules
    as determined by the RTO
  • increased employment opportunities.

When you undertake SWL in the same industry as your VET certificate, you can gain additional units towards your VCE or VCAL if you complete SWL Recognition. This is a process where you reflect on your SWL experiences in a Workplace Learning Record and discuss these with your school.
