The Work-Based Learning (WBL) program is designed to provide experiences and activities that support a school to career transition. This simply means that students are allowed to work off campus in the business community in order to learn more about a chosen career. Once a student has met all requirements of WBL, the WBL Coordinator will determine the correct WBL placement for the student. The students will earn one unit of credit for each completed WBL course.
