Work-Based Learning is a learning experience for a student at an employer's worksite. While on the job, a student's learning experience consists of four elements:
- A planned program of job training/work experience supporting student's career goals.
- Acquire skills increasing in degree of difficulty.
- Exposure to a broad spectrum of employability skills.
- Development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Students: Contact your school counselor or a work-based learning teacher in your school to find out if you are qualified for the program.
