October 2019

This month we focus our attention to work-based learning (WBL) strategies and the myriad of approaches that it can take.  The “premiere” version of WBL is apprenticeships that include a rigorous program of academic instruction and paid work experience.  But WBL can also include internships, on-the-job training, and mentorships. 

There is no one size fits all, and it all depends on the interests and abilities of the individual as well as the needs and commitment of the employer, coupled with the access to good educational resources.

WorkforceGPS is full of reports, successful practices, tools and webinars that highlight the various WBL strategies.  We have gathered many of these resources in one location, taken from a number of communities including Apprenticeship, Career Pathways, Innovation and Opportunity Network, Youth Connections, and others.  Additional resources are constantly being added as this strategy to learning becomes more and more recognized as a win-win for the individual and the employer.
