Participate in Workforce Development
Work-based learning (WBL) is an educational opportunity that provides students with real-life work experiences where they can apply academic and technical skills and develop employability skills. The concept of work-based learning has been an integral part of the Career and Technical Education system. Work-based learning experiences occur in a work setting, typically at an employer's worksite. The work-based learning activities are coordinated with school-based activities in an attempt to show students the "why" of what they are learning. Work-based learning strategies provide career awareness, career exploration opportunities, career planning activities, and help students reach competencies such as positive work attitudes and employability skills.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor through an internship or apprenticeship, contact Kevin Wilson, Career Development Coordinator, email@example.com or 704-658-2507.
