Definition of 

WORK-BASED LEARNING

The term ‘work-based learning’ means sustained interactions with industry or community professionals in real workplace settings, to the extent practicable, or simulated environments at an educational institution that foster  in-depth, firsthand engagement with the tasks required in a given career field, that are aligned to curriculum and instruction.’’ 

NYSED proposed a draft four-year Perkins V State Plan in accordance with the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V). 

The plan is aligned with New York's Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan and addresses New York's priorities to increase access to high-quality Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs, support at-risk students and improve career development for all secondary and postsecondary students. The Department will hold three public forums and accept public comment in December and January. Comments will be taken via email as well.
