Support and Wellbeing

We look out for our people with the VFA SWAP

Providing holistic support to our students is what we do best at VFA Learning. Our Student Wellbeing Assistance Program – or if you prefer acronyms like we do – SWAP Learning is our tailored pastoral care service designed to assist you through your qualification by encouraging good study habits and class attendance.

We know that students perform better when they have access to wrap-around services – plus we’ve had thousands of students through our doors over the last two decades, so we know what works.

How SWAP works

SWAP incorporates elements of physical, social and emotional wellbeing:

Assigning a dedicated homeroom teacher to each class
Monitoring student progress via our purpose-built Online Learning Management System
Coordinating student practical work placements, ensuring we match each student with the most appropriate centre
Regular contact with students and employers during practical placements to ensure performance standards are met.
Providing students with access to professional counselling via our partnership with Headspace.

SWAP Results

Past and current students will tell you the pastoral care and support we offer our students leads them to greater course success. Since implementing the SWAP program, our completion rates and student satisfaction scores improved. (For the record, they were pretty good to start with!).
