Employer's Guide to Work-Based Learning

In the Santa Clarita Valley you will find a diverse student population with a wide range of skills seeking work based learning opportunities in order to meet educational program requirements, explore future careers or develop their skills to enter the workforce. 

  Whether providing a single day of job shadowing for a high school student, or a semester long internship for a graduate student, both experiences equally benefit the local workforce. By providing these opportunities, you are part of grooming the next generation for work and contributing to the local economy.

 A vast cluster of activities occur under the umbrella of “work-based learning”:

  •  Apprenticeships
  • Community-Based Learning
  • Internships
  • Job Shadowing
  • On The Job Training (OJT)
  • Volunteerism
  • Work Experience Program

This Guide to Work-Based Learning will help companies find the student they are looking for by providing the following information:  

  •  The type of WBL offered and from which school
  • The student age range
  • Whether the school provides Workers Compensation Insurance
  • The number of hours and duration for a particular WBL activity
  • If the tuition provides funding to pay the student
