Work Based Learning
“Research has indicated that work-based experiences invigorate learning and that students participating in work-based learning were more likely to stay in school, take more difficult courses, and graduate.”
- Swail, Watson S. and Kampits, Eva, 2004
Work-based learning is a major component of career and technical education. Improved skills lead to higher efficiency and the availability of a better-trained labor pool that encourages business growth and productivity. Well-managed work-based learning experiences build confidence in the school system and have benefits for the student, employer, mentor, school, and community.
Please contact Mrs. Bondurant or your guidance counselor if you are interested in joining the Work Based Learning program or if your business is interested in having a student work with you.
