#LearnToEarn

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.
