Work Based Learning Manual 2015

Work-Based Learning (WBL) is an effective teaching approach used to engage students in real-life occupational experiences. It incorporates structured, work-based learning activities into the curriculum, allowing a student to apply knowledge and skills learned in class and connect these learning experiences in the workplace. Work-based learning provides students with the opportunity to engage and interact with employers, while learning to demonstrate essential employability and technical skills necessary for today’s workforce. The purpose of this manual is to provide guidance and direction for schools when developing and implementing the components of work-based learning experiences outlined in 704 KAR
3:305, Minimum Requirements for High School Graduation. Other specific administrative regulations guide the implementation requirements for Career and Technical Education programs and cooperative education standards, which are referenced throughout this document. The guidance and tools included within this resource are critical to all teachers and administrators involved in the coordination of work-based learning programs. Digital access to the Work-Based Learning Manual can be found on the Kentucky Department of Education’s website, on the Career and Technical Education Resources page. The direct Web link can be found at
