Work-Based Learning internships integrate high school courses, technical skills, and career goals through real-world work experiences. Through work-based learning experiences, students merge theory with practical work experience in jobs with local business partners.
- Businesses benefit through access to an applicant pool who are interested, qualified, career-oriented, and have technical skills training.
- Students benefit from real-world application of the academic, employability, and technical skills learned in school.
- Communities benefit from strong relationships between businesses and schools. Through active exchanges, educators better understand employers’ needs and employers contribute to the technical skills development of the community’s workforce.
- Instructional strategies provide career awareness, career exploration, career planning, employability skills training, and support as students integrate school with work.
We have many options available for students including 12 for Life, Tanner Connections, and the Southwire Engineering Academy.
