The best type of preparation for the world of work is experiential. Hands – on work in a chosen field with support truly enables students to understand the employer employee relationship and avoid many career pitfalls. SWBOCES can facilitate these all important relationships.

The Work Based Learning Coordinator can:
 Assess your school for different WBL experiences, both on campus and in the community
 Visit and approve off campus sites for students.
 Can assist your school in setting up a system of documenting WBL hours that students may be eligible for through after school, weekend, summer jobs and volunteer experiences
 Suit the needs of your unique and diverse environment.
