What Is Work-Based Learning (WBL)?

Curriculum & Strategy

WBL is a continuum of awareness, exploration, preparation and training activities, including developing employability and technical skills that support success in school, careers, and postsecondary education. Structured learning and authentic work experiences are implemented through an education and industry partnership. Students have the opportunity to connect what they learn in school with worksite application, enabling a smooth transition into the work force and/or education beyond high school.

Work-Based Learning activities culminate in an assessment and recognition of acquired knowledge and skills and help to assist students with meeting their social and emotional needs.
