Work-Based Learning (WBL)

Work-Based Learning at IEC

Work-Based Learning (WBL) as a key activity that allows students to build a bridge from adolescent roles in the classroom to adult roles in professional settings. WBL activities include exposure to a range of occupations and career options, and classroom or community activities that incorporate employers as speakers, advisors, instructors or mentors. Students learn by observing and/or actually doing real work. Learning in the workplace or from industry professionals supports academic learning and promotes the development of broad transferable skills.

All students must check their Outlook e-mail for opportunities.
