Due to the evolving impact of the COVID – 19, Wyndham City will not be able to facilitate Year 11 & 12 student placements for the remainder of 2021. We are currently introducing a hybrid model of working in which staff are working from home and on site intermittently making placements unmanageable to facilitate now. We will inform all key stakeholders of Council’s direction to resume services and provide updates on the re-opening of applications and the re-allocation of individual placements moving into the new year (2022).

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Should you have any questions, please email work.experience@wyndham.vic.gov.au.


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.

Council has partnered with WynBay Local Learning and Employment Network (LLEN) to create opportunities for SWL placements. 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). 

Talk to your school Coordinator or click on the links below to find out more.

How to apply

  • Complete the online SWL Request Form (link to form).
  • Once this form is received, we will coordinate your placement with the requested area of Council within 5-7 business days.

Note: Wyndham City will accept applications throughout the year with priority given to students who either live or go to school within Wyndham. Due to high demand for placements, limited resources or workload of the Department, unfortunately it is not always possible to place all students.
