Work-Based Learning

WBL logoWork-Based Learning (WBL) Programs is a continuum of awareness, exploration, preparation, and training activities, including developing employability and technical skills that support success in careers and postsecondary education. Structured learning and authentic work experiences are implemented through an education and industry partnership. Students have the opportunity to connect what they learn in school with worksite applications, enabling a smooth transition into the workforce and/or education beyond high school. Work-based learning activities culminate in an assessment and recognition of acquired knowledge and skills.

WBL at Foothills Regional High School provides an opportunity for students to earn CTAE/Elective credits by working an approved job while in high school.  Students enrolled will develop employability and technical skills that support success in careers and postsecondary education. Structured learning assignments and authentic work experiences are implemented and allow students to earn up to three (3) credits.

Requirements:
 - You must be at least 15 years of age.
 - You must have earned at least one (1) CTAE/elective credit prior to enrolling.           
 - You must have current employment for at least two pay periods (or one month).
