Work-Based Learning integrates high school courses, technical skills, and career goals through real-world work experiences. Through work-based learning experiences, students merge theory with practical work experience in jobs with local business partners.
- Businesses benefit through access to an applicant pool who are interested, qualified, career-oriented, and have technical skills training.
- Students benefit from real-world application of the academic, employability, and technical skills learned in school.
- Communities benefit from strong relationships between businesses and schools. Through active exchanges, educators better understand employers’ needs and employers contribute to the technical skills development of the community’s workforce.
- Instructional strategies provide career awareness, career exploration, career planning, employability skills training, and support as students integrate school with work.
