Work-Based Learning Application

What is Work-Based Learning (WBL)?

WBL is an opportunity to be released from school early to go to work and start gaining some real world work experience and get school credit! You can have a paid part-time position or an unpaid internship. We hope to relate your work experience to your long-term career goals and/or your CTAE classroom experience.
