​WORK-BASED LEARNING

Work-based learning is an instructional strategy that is essential in preparing all students for success in postsecondary education and careers.  The primary purpose of work-based learning is to expose students to options for their future and provide opportunities for skill development and mastery over time.  All work-based learning experiences involve student interactions with industry or community professionals that are linked to career exploration and work experiences.  The term “work-based” does not mean the experience must occur at a workplace or during the standard workday.
