Work-based learning ( WBL) experiences are activities that involve actual work experience or that connect classroom learning to employment and careers. It is a process that allows students to explore careers, connect with businesses, learn about the function of an organization, and understand the relevance of their education. WBL creates opportunities for employers and the North Country Career Center to provide structured learning experiences to develop workplace readiness, technical, and 21st Century Skills. (Adapted from the Vermont Agency of Education WBL Learning Manual, pg. 10)
The North Country Career Center's WBL Program provides paid and unpaid work-based learning experiences.
