Columbia County School District Work-Based Learning

What is Work-Based Learning?

Work-Based Learning (WBL) is a structured program that connects school-based occupational instruction and related work-site experiences. In essence, it is an extension of the school-based curriculum at the workplace!  

The program prepares students with academic and job skills necessary to be successful in their chosen career, while at the same time meeting the needs of local businesses. 

WBL is designed to provide employers with qualified employees.  Students are exposed to a wide range of general and specific workplace knowledge and competencies through the WBL experience.  The ultimate goal is to better prepare students for future career opportunities.  WBL is a win-win situation for employers and students!

It is the policy of the Columbia County Board of Education not to discriminate on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, race, handicap, religion or national origin in the educational programs and activities or admissions to facilities operated by the Columbia County Board of Education.
