Work Based Learning

Work-based learning (WBL) identifies activities which collaboratively engage employers and schools in providing structured learning experiences for students. These experiences focus on assisting students with developing broad, transferable skills for postsecondary education and the workplace. A quality WBL program can make school-based learning more relevant by providing students with the opportunity to apply knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to real-world situations. WBL experiences typically take place outside of the school building, and students may earn academic credit.

At Rockland BOCES students in our Career and Technical Education Center and Hudson Valley P-TECH can take advantage of a variety of job placements throughout the academic year to gain career ready skills.

WBL learning is also offered for several of our Student Services programs. Contact your principal or teacher for more information.

For information on Transition Services, please contact Mary Ellen Urinyi.
