Expanding Work-Based Learning Experiences

Work-based learning (WBL) is an educational strategy for students and educators to put theory into practice with real-life work experiences.  WBL can vary from job shadowing & internships to simulations & mentoring.  WBL allows students to explore career paths.

 

 

Examples:

Teachers@Work-Twin Counties is a unique professional development opportunity for local educators to connect classroom to workplace.  Educators complete a paid one week summer externship in local companies.

S.T.E.P. actively works to support and  expand work-based opportunities for students in Edgecombe and Nash counties.
