With ever changing restrictions, lock downs and advice from VCAA and DET, accumulating SWL hours has become a real challenge. Narelle will provide you with strategies, tips and ideas on how to maximise SWL hours whilst staying within COVID restrictions. Be it through tapping into your Local Learning and Employment Network (LLEN), Council, local industry or utilising your school as a workplace (when we return to face to face learning). This webinar will enable you to roll with the punches!
