Structured Workplace Learning

The FMPLLEN is funded by the Department of Education and Training to operate the Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) Program in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula region.

The program provides quality SWL placements and School Based Apprenticeship and Traineeships (SBATs) with local employers for students studying a VET course as part of their VCE or VCAL.

Under a Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) placement, a student actively attends and participates in a workplace as a component of a formal Vocational Education Training (VET) qualification.

A SWL placement usually occurs one day a week or in week blocks.


An SWL placement gives students the opportunity to gain valuable employability skills and put into practice the skills and knowledge they have gained undertaking their VET course in a real-world work context.

Many employers expect school leavers to have some practical experience, enabling them to quickly become productive in the work environment. VET and Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) programs help students to cross the bridge between general education and the world of work.

If you are a local employer or know of someone who would be able to host a student on a work placement, please contact us using the link below.
