Work-based learning is founded on the principle that it would be of great benefit and value for the student to receive actual on-the-job learning experiences from one who is already doing the job for which the student is preparing.
The work-based learning experience can be acquired in many venues from apprenticeships, internships, cooperative work experience education, mentoring, volunteering, clinical experience, work study programs, and service learning. These programs combine academic study and practical work experience to develop students’ marketable skills and prepare them for a successful career. Some of the activities used in the programs to help the student are job shadowing, career related workshops, attendance at job fairs and trade shows, and business tours.
