Work-Based Learning: The Competitive Advantage

What do you want to be when you grow up?” The fact is that the sooner you start thinking about the answer to this question, the easier it will be for you to begin to set goals and establish a path to obtain them. Whether you're vying for a spot in a highly competitive college or jumping right into the workplace, you need to stand out and give yourself the competitive advantage you need to push ahead and grow to your full potential.

The face of Career and Technical Education has changed and today it's all about state-of-the-art classrooms that take learning to a whole new level. Through a work-based learning experience, industry leading experts take you far beyond the traditional classroom and immerse you in real-world application of your studies, allowing you to bring your ideas, innovation, and creativity to life. Whether your place is in the culinary kitchen, recording studios, the greenhouse, autobody shop, science or robotics labs, the network room, the dark room, 3D animation editing suites, or outdoor classrooms, this is learning that pushes you to new heights!

Those who already have a plan to pursue a particular career or have narrowed it down to a couple of choices, are ideal candidates for participating as an intern or apprentice your junior or senior year. There is no better way to determine whether or not you are on the right path than to gain work experience related to your future educational and career goals.
