What is Work Based Learning?

  • Work-based learning is an authentic learning experience that allows students to explore their career goals, interests, and abilities while applying their academic and technical knowledge and skills in a real-world context. 
  • Work-based Learning activities are planned and supervised by instructional staff in collaboration with business, industry, or community partners. 
  • High quality work-based learning will provide effective and equitable experiences to empower all students to become confident workers and culturally competent citizens of New York State.

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.

  • Provide career exploration for our students
  • Arrange for job development and placement with local entrepreneurs and businesses 
  • Manage service-based learning within Westchester County
  • Create workplace initiatives with local school districts
