Work-Based Learning

  • Work-Based Learning is a learning experience that connects knowledge and skills obtained in the classroom to those needed outside the classroom.  The program helps students transition from school to work to lifelong learning. Work-based learning comprises a range of activities and instructional strategies designed in developing or fulfilling individual careers and educational plans.

    Benefits of Work-Based Learning

    Students who participate in work-based learning connected to their school programs may:

    • Show improved academic achievement.
    • Realize the relevance of their education and apply acquired knowledge in a meaningful way.
    • Have the opportunity to explore career options.
    • Increase self-confidence.
    • Acquire real workplace experience and employability skills.
