Work-Based Learning

  • Students will have supervised, authentic work-based learning opportunities through extended, engaging and immersive experiences with business and industry professionals. Students will pursue career goals identified through their Individual Plans of Study while applying academic, technical and essential skills. Students successfully completing the work-based learning experience will be able to dream, believe, and achieve their futures in the Wichita workforce.


    The program focuses on skills that all students should have when entering the workforce. The expectation of both the student and the business partner, is that the student will be developing these focus skills through hands-on experiences, not just a job shadow. These focus skills include:


    • Applied Academic Skills
    • Interpersonal Skills
    • Personal Qualities
    • Communication Skills
    • Technology Use
    • Information Use
    • Critical Thinking Skills
    • Resource Management
    • Systems Thinking
