Structured workplace learning and work experience

Welcome to Hobsons Bay City Council structured workplace learning and work experience program. Hobsons Bay City Council have partnered with WynBay Local Learning and Employment Network (LLEN) to create opportunities for work experience and structured workplace learning placements.

Work experience is available for year 10 students. The placement can be either a one or two week block.

Structured workplace learning (SWL) provides students with the opportunity to integrate on-the-job experience with secondary study. It is delivered to master a set of skills or competencies related to a course accredited by the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) or the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) and undertaken as part of either their VCE or their VCAL. The placement can be a two-week block or one day a week for the full term with the aim to complete up to 80 hours (this can be flexible and discussed with your school). 

Due to high number of requests received, it is not always possible to offer placements to all students.

To apply for placement, students will need to talk to their school coordinator. More information on the programs can be found in the links below:
