Members of the Work-Based Learning Section are professionals working to provide students with authentic learning experiences in business and industry. These professionals are educators, counselors, and school-to-work/work-based learning coordinators. Members of this section involve students in experiences on all levels of the work-based learning continuum.
This section provides guidance and resources in offering quality work-based learning experiences for students, as outlined under the work-based learning element within the ACTE High Quality Framework. This section can also assist those in states that choose to report on work-based learning for the new Perkins program quality indicator or in other state accountability systems to strengthen their student outcomes.
Join the Work-Based Learning Section today and benefit from the many professional development opportunities that are available. You can count on receiving an outstanding return on your investment.
