What is Work-Based Learning?
Work-Based Learning (WBL) allows students to participate in paid work experiences, internships, health science clinicals, job shadowing, registered apprenticeships, and school-based enterprise opportunities during the school day for course credit. Opportunities vary, but the goal of WBL is to develop employability skills that will prepare students for success in postsecondary education and/or high demand, high skill careers.
Students who meet the requirements for Work-based learning can be scheduled for a single or double block, and
may earn a maximum of three WBL credits for graduation.

How can a student prepare for Work-Based Learning?
Students can prepare for Work-Based Learning by completing programs of study that are interesting for them, and through career exploration to discover careers they would enjoy. An ideal WBL placement will be in a career field the student is considering, and will allow the student to further develop classroom skills while exploring career options and gaining valuable work experience. Students should talk to the instructor(s) from their Programs of Study, their counselor, and the work-based learning coordinator to plan their experience.

CTE Programs of Study include:

Advanced Manufacturingo Agriculture, Food & Nat Resources Architecture & Construction
