Work-Based Learning (WBL)

Work-Based Learning is sustained and progressively intensive interactions with employers or community professionals in real workplace settings, to the extent practicable, or simulated environments at an educational institution that foster in-depth, first-hand engagement with the tasks required of a given career field, that are aligned to curriculum, instruction, and Career and Technical Education (CTE) Program standards.
