Work-Based Learning

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
 -Thomas Edison

OverviewCTE Introduction Logo
A minimum of six Work-Based Learning experiences is designated during the CTE Intro year to provide career awareness and exploration experiences that support and sustain classroom instruction and curriculum. These Work-Based Learning experiences are not intended to be an add-on. Work-Based Learning experiences should reflect a variety of career fields for students to explore their own interests and apply their self-discovery to the world of work. Work-Based Learning is a teaching strategy that enhances classroom learning. These experiences must occur in one or more the following four areas:

  • Career Fairs
  • Field Studies
  • Guest Speakers
  • Job Shadows

Work-Based Learning Goal
Connect the community and the classroom by using community resource persons to emphasize both work and occupations.  An effective Work-Based Learning experience will:

  • Help students understand career application of subject matter
  • Teach and reinforce productive work habits
  • Emphasize career awareness and exploration
