WORK BASED LEARNING
Work-based learning (WBL) is a progressive, multi-year sequence of instructional activities, within a real-world, work-related context, that allows students to build a bridge from adolescence roles in the classroom to adult roles in professional settings.
WORK BASED LEARNING ACTIVITIES
While WBL activities can occur in any grade - at any school, it is a core strategy in Career and Technical Education (CTE). Below are examples of different types of activities that prepare your students to fully participate in work settings:
• Career Focused Field Trips (Workplace Tour)
• Guest Speaker
• Career Fair
• Job Shadowing
• Research Project (with industry interaction and support)
• Interactive Project (with multiple interactions with professionals)
• Student-Run Enterprise (with industry Involvement)
• Service Learning (Community Service)

• Compensated Internship Connected to Curriculum (for credit or money)
WORK SKILLS EMPLOYABILITY PROFILE
