Work Based Learning is a career technical program designed to prepare students to enter the workforce. All assignments and requirements reflect this mission. It is designed to provide participating students with connecting activities/coursework that are directly related to the student's instructional pathway and employment aspirations. Work-based Learning is a planned program of study that offers students (16 or older in grades 11 and 12) an opportunity to work at a job site in a business in the community. Through WBL, students have the opportunity to connect what they learn in school with work-site applications to enable a smooth transition into the workforce and/or education beyond high school.


The mission of the Work-Based Learning Program is to assist in providing a highly trained, technologically sophisticated and career oriented young workforce. This is accomplished by developing partnerships between business, industry, students, parents, school systems, coordinators, post-secondary institutions, and registered apprenticeships which will lead the participating student into meaningful careers. For more information about the TCSS WBL programs, view our brochure here.


Students must be at least 16 years old, submit a completed application and initial paperwork packet, have acceptable attendance and behavior records, have credit for 1 CTAE pathway course which relates to their job/future career field, and is on track for graduation. Students must work at an appropriate business or organization work site for a minimum of seven and a half (7.5) hours per week per class block of WBL (i.e., 1 block = 7.5 hrs./wk., 2 blocks = 15 hrs./wk.).
