Structured Workplace Learning Recognition (SWLR) Workshops

Structured Workplace Learning Recognition (SWLR) for VCE and VCAL students is a systematic and formal approach to workplace learning through which students can receive credit towards their VCE or VCAL. Before commencing delivery and in order to gain VASS access to enrol and result students in SWLR, schools must first attend a dedicated workshop to understand the administrative and assesment requirements.
