Work Based Learning

  • Work-Based Learning activities extend the classroom into the workplace, connecting knowledge and skills to a student's future career.  These activities can  include guest speakers, field trips, job shadows, school-based enterprises, and internships.

    Worksite Learning is a subset of Work-Based learning and is usually more structured and comprehensive. 

    All Worksite Learning is categorized as either Instructional or Cooperative and with both, students may be able to earn high school credits.
