The Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) program links secondary school students studying VET in Schools and VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) with structured work experience placements that match the certificate training they are completing.  The LLEN network in Victoria is the official provider of these services on behalf of the Department of Education and Training.
