WBL CONTINUUM:

The Work-Based Learning Continuum provides a way of visualizing and organizing the continuum of high quality experiences that help students to identify and explore their career interests and prepare for career options through practical experience. The continuum outlines some of the various activities, both in and outside the classroom, which enable students to connect academic and technical content to its “real world” application, and to build 21st century career readiness skills and competencies​.
