Structured Workplace Learning Program (SWL Program)
There's nothing like on-the-job experience when it comes to thinking about career choices. Our SWL Program makes it possible for young people aged 15-19 to try out different jobs, meet local employers and gain beneficial work experience through SWL placements and SBATs.
Specifically, we will support schools, industry and the community to:
- access appropriate SWL placements for VET students
- facilitate meaningful partnerships between schools and employers
- source local SWL placements for difficult to place students
- identify local needs and industry priorities for appropriate SWL placements

What is SWL Portal?
Structured Workplace Learning allows students to gain hands on skills related to the course they are studying at school. Employers provide training to assist students to master key competencies or skills. Placements for Structured Workplace Learning can be undertaken in one week blocks or on a one day a week basis.
The Structured Workplace Learning Portal arrived in 2016. The Portal helps young people find opportunities to develop vocation skills and experience to assist with their transition into the workforce. This website means schools and students can gain information on placement opportunities when they require it.
The Structured Workplace Learning Portal is making placements more accessible to schools/students and easier for them to consume. Placements will continue to be added by Highlands LLEN and employers therefore a diverse range of SWL placement opportunities will be available.
Benefits of the online Portal;
- Easy to access
- Access to pre-populated documents
- Diverse range of placement opportunities
- Place-based information
Schools are encouraged to utilise consumed opportunities on the Portal in a timely manner. Once an opportunity is consumed on the Portal the next step is the interview between the student and employer. Once complete, the Portal is updated to ensure all data is correct and opportunities for placements are not missed.
