Work-Based Learning

Work-Based Learning (WBL) provides opportunities for students to learn a variety of skills through rigorous academic preparation with hands-on career development experiences.

You can prepare for a career while you are in high school through CTE Pathways. Talk to your high school counselor for more information.

Technical education is a great way to learn a new skill at any age. In most cases, you can take classes from technical colleges while you are in high school. Talk to a representative from a technical college near you for more information.

Apprenticeship is an "earn and learn" training model that combines work-based learning with related classroom instruction. Apprentices get paid to learn on the job and employers build a strong, skilled workforce.
