Work-Based Learning

  • Work-Based Learning (WBL) represents the pinnacle of the Career-Related Education experience. There are several opportunities for students to participate in Work-Based Learning. These opportunities include Cooperative Education, Internship, Youth Apprenticeship, and Clinical Experiences. 

    Students must have a defined pathway in order to participate. This is especially important for the successful application of a student’s pathway because each job placement is directly related to the curriculum of the classes completed or in which the student is currently enrolled.

    Work-Based Learning is an extension of the high school classroom learning in a non-traditional laboratory setting. It is an opportunity to apply what the student has learned in a real-world setting.
