Students seeking a work placement for Structured Workplace Learning can search for placements online.
The SWL online portal lists local and state-wide work placement opportunities. Students can search the portal by region, industry or course to find an appropriate work placement.
For local Wimmera and Southern Mallee opportunities please visit: http://workplacements.education.vic.gov.au/llens/wsmllen/.
Students in Stawell or Ararat areas should visit: https://workplacements.education.vic.gov.au/llens/cgllen/
Select ‘share with your teacher’ when you find an appropriate opportunity and your teacher can match you to the position before you arrange to attend an interview.
If a student is having difficulties finding a structured work placement, WSMLLEN will offer assistance, through the VET Cluster, to source a suitable placement.
Before students undertake a placement, there is a form to fill out to ensure that they are covered by WorkSafe insurance while on placement. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all paperwork associated with structured work placements are completed and returned prior to the commencement of the placement. See your school VET coordinator for more information.
Students will need to meet the work placement requirements of the course to the best of their abilities.
