Through work-based learning, students can gain a variety of skills that positively impact their education in the classroom and set them on a path to their futures. For instance, research points to higher postsecondary GPAs earned by students who participated in work-based experiences in high school. Data has also demonstrated better employment outcomes for students who participate in workplace learning
There are a variety of work-based learning experiences that students can participate in, ranging from tours and job shadowing to internships and apprenticeships. And luckily, these experiences are not as difficult to develop and manage as some employers think, according to a brief from the Pathways to Prosperity Network. In addition, states are coming up with innovative ways to measure the effectiveness of work-based learning, as described in this report from Advance CTE.
When sharing the above information with business leaders, the media and policymakers, highlight how work-based learning has helped students and employers in your area.
You can find more research and data about CTE with ACTE Fact Sheets.
