Work-Based Component

Home»School to Career»Work-Based Component

Our Work-Based Component gives high school students the chance to have first-hand experiences on the job while giving employers the chance to train tomorrow’s workers today.  In a work-based learning setting, students explore a career path they are interested in pursuing.  Work-based learning often strengthens academic learning and reinforces the connection between education and employment.

Opportunities for certified work-based learning include the following:

Youth Apprenticeship

Cooperative Education Skills Certificate

Employability Skills

Each of the above provides students with a Skills Certificate at the completion of the program.

NOTE:  Not all schools in the consortium offer the same opportunities.  Students interest in one of the above should check with their School to Career Coordinator.
