Work-Based Learning Program

Work-Based Learning (WBL) is an educational plan that integrates classroom learning with supervised work experience in an employment situation directly related to the education program of a student. WBL enhances the educational process by bringing the worlds of theory and application together. Students learn the important link between academic learning and what is expected in the workplace.

Depending on the curriculum program, WBL students work from one to three semesters in a part-time or full-time job. This can either be a paid or a volunteer position with employers approved by the WBL Instructor Coordinator.

Academic credit is given for the learning gained during the WBL work experience. Work experience involves the development of job skills directly related to the educational program of the student.
