• Work-based learning (WBL) is an educational strategy that provides students with real-life work experiences where they can apply academic and technical skills and develop employability skills. The concept of work-based learning is an integral part of the Career and Technical Education system that provides a competitive advantage for students. Work-based learning experiences occur in a work setting, and typically are scheduled during the first or the last period of the day.

    Types of work-based learning include:

    • Apprenticeship
    • Business/Industry Field Trip
    • Internship
    • Job Shadowing
    • School-Based Enterprise 
    • Service Learning
    • Teamship (District C)
