Structured Workplace Learning

Structured Workplace Learning

The Inner Eastern LLEN has been funded by the Department of Education to improve the quality of and access to structured workplace learning (SWL) and School Based Apprenticeship and Traineeship (SBAT) opportunities for students in the LGAs of Boroondara, Port Phillip and Stonnington.

What is structured workplace learning?

Structured workplace learning is on-the-job training (mostly in a block of one week) during which a student has the opportunity to put into practice skills and knowledge they have gained through attendance of a VET course.

What is School Based Apprenticeship and Traineeship?

A School Based Apprenticeship and Traineeship is essentially a part time Apprenticeship or Traineeship, with the student attending work one or two days per week and school the remaining days per week. The student is an employee of the company and is paid award wages for their time in training and while at work.
