Work-Based Learning (Co-Op)

July 30, 2020 kjohnson10 Blog

Work-Based Learning provides students with educational opportunities that typically cannot be replicated in the classroom.  Work-based experiences are designed to connect information learned in the classroom with skills obtained in an occupational setting as an apprentice or intern. Work-based learning promotes improved skills, 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.
