Work-based learning experiences are usually unpaid and short in duration. They are designed to let students improve the skills they've learned in their lab and acquire new skills specific to the worksite. As part of the experience, students will be asked to share the new skills or experiences they've had with their classmates. A work-based learning experience allows an employer to assess a student's abilities and work ethic and may lead to employment.
Possible work-based learning experiences include but are not limited to:
- Working Interview
- Short Work Experience
- Career Fair
- Workplace Tour
- Project-Based Learning Experience
- Community Service/Service Project
Although work-based learning experiences are considered excused time off from school, students are responsible for completing all missed work.
To participate in work-based learning, students are required to complete and return a work-based learning application and training agreement. Both of these forms are available in the Career Services office, A212.
