WBL Mission / Objectives

The WBL mission is to provide an educational opportunity for students to apply classroom learning in a (paid or unpaid) viable, supervised curriculum-related workplace (thus earn direct work experience) while concurrently earning college credit. Instead of a traditional classroom, the classroom will actually be the work site.

 

Objectives of the WBL Office are:

-Provide students supervised work experience in a curriculum-related field with area businesses, industries, and public agencies.

-Support career development for students. Coordinate network with employers and prospective employers about the WBL program and support economic workforce development.

-Create and maintain accurate, detailed WBL records in adherence to the North Carolina Community College System Policies and Procedures.

 

Through WBL students:

-Earn academic/college credit while learning in a realistic situation.

-Gain a working knowledge in the chosen field of study.

-Relate classroom instruction to job activities and better comprehend concepts.

-Network with professionals in the field and make contacts for the future.

-Establish solid references for future job search.

 

Education + Work Experience = SUCCESS
