Work-based learning allows students the opportunity to work in particular fields in alignment with any CTAE pathways taken. Students are also granted the opportunity to interact with professionals who have worked in it for years. This type of experience can help students make decisions about their long-term career goals, as well as gain experience that reinforces academic instruction.
