Course Description
Work-Based Learning
Work-Based Learning offer students the opportunity to explore career options and develop critical academic and technical skills in collaboration with community and/or industry involvement. As such, students should have access to a series of structured WBL experiences that deepen their knowledge and allow them to apply classroom theories into practice. At an early level/grade, WBL experiences can help students develop a broad understanding and awareness of industries and possible careers that are available to them. Over time, these experiences narrow in focus as students find a good fit, learn what type of post secondary education is necessary for success, and begin practicing the academic, technical and soft skills necessary to enter their identified careers.
