Work-based learning (WBL) is an extension of classroom learning into the workplace by connecting academic knowledge and technical skills to develop employability skills. Essentially, work-based learning is an educational strategy that provides students with real-life work experiences. WBL students learn what it takes to thrive and succeed in the professional world through partnerships with local employers and organizations that offer job shadows, internships, mentorships, and/or apprenticeships.
The College & Career Center offers all students various opportunities to develop their employability skills. See Mr. Sandro Lopez for assistance with:
- Career Exploration
- Work Permits
- Resume Building
- Cover Letters
- Job Search
- Interview Preparation
- Job Shadowing Opportunities
Here NMCHS students can find the links to local trade apprenticeship programs. These opportunities become available, once they've earned their HS diploma. Graduates can earn an income, while learning a trade.
