Do you need to comply?

Yes, if your school has students undertaking structured workplace learning.

Conditions of compliance

Quality structured workplace learning is:

  • integrated into a program
  • structured
  • monitored
  • regulated
  • assessed.

When developing and reviewing structured workplace learning programs as part of the post compulsory curricula for senior students, schools should ensure that the principles for quality delivery of structured workplace learning, under Ministerial order 55, are embedded wherever applicable.

If you have to comply, what do you have to do?

There are many requirements of structured workplace learning with which you must comply. There are roles and responsibilities for principals, structured workplace learning coordinators, employers, students and parents. These are described in the Structured Workplace Learning Manual (refer to ‘Links, resources and downloads’, below).

What are the consequences if you don’t comply?

You may be in breach of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic). You may also be putting your students at risk.
