STUDENTS from secondary col-
leges throughout South Gippsland
and Bass Coast are demonstrat-
ing their Vocational Education
Training (VET) in structured work
placements with local businesses.
The Structured Workplace Learn-
ing (SWL) program is funded by the
Department of Education (DET)
and delivered by South Gippsland
Bass Coast Local Learning and Em-
ployment Network (SGBCLLEN).
The SWL program enables stu-
dents undertaking Vocational Edu-
cation and Training (VET) access
to appropriate SWL placements as
part of their Victorian Certificate of
Education (VCE) and Victorian Cer-
tificate of Applied learning (VCAL).
The SWL program facilitates
engagement between schools and
employers, and supports schools
to get local SWL placements for
difficult to place students whilst
identifying local needs and indus-
try priorities for appropriate SWL
An online state wide SWL place-
ment portal has been in operation
since 2016 and has streamlined
the placement process. Businesses
can access the portal to create SWL
placement opportunities; and stu-
dents can access placements from
the portal and schools then have a
reduced amount of administration.
Karena Kerr SWL program Co-
ordinator said: “The portal offers
significant benefits to students as
they will also have the ability to ac-
cess SWL placements outside the
region. Schools also have assis-
tance with difficult to find place-
ments and benefit from a more
time efficient system.”
“Student’s Reece Stark, Peter
Gillian and Toby Clifton are cur-
rently undertaking Cert 2 Automo-
tive one day a week as part of their
VET. These boys also participate
in placements with local automo-
tive businesses where they put
their learning to practical use in a
workshop environment. Students
participating in Vet complete ac-
credited training that can assist
with future employment and fur-
ther training opportunities. Reece,
Peter and Toby all aspire to be me-
chanics, so this pathway is a fan-
tastic way to develop their skills
and get on the job training whilst
they are at school,” she said.
Toby Clifton said: “The new
Trade Skills Centre has amazing
equipment and the latest technol-
ogy for us to work with and l think
the knowledge and skills l learn
here will set me up for my career
If you are a student, parent, from
business or the community and re-
quire further information regard-
