from Hall County WBL

The mission of the Work-Based Learning Program is to assist in providing a highly trained, technologically sophisticated and career oriented young work force. This is accomplished by developing partnerships between business, industry, students, parents, school systems, coordinators, and post-secondary institutions which will lead the participating student into meaningful careers.

  • To assist in the creation of a strong support structure and partnerships between local employers, secondary schools, and technical schools, colleges and certified training programs.
  • To provide assistance in the articulation of programs of study between high schools and post-secondary institutions.
  • To create a system that is industry driven where employers and their representatives help set occupational skills standards, collaborate on curriculum, provide work experience and work place mentors for students, and certify mastery of skills leading to the award of a skill certificate.
  • To focus on student’s learning about “many aspects” of a broad industry cluster rather than mastering a narrow set of occupational skills.

The key to Georgia’s economic future is a prepared workforce. Employee responsibility is often the missing link in the working arena. While most students are graduating from high school and preparing for the future with the appropriate academic credentials, many still lack the soft skills and work ethic to succeed in today’s workforce.
