Workplace Learning & Placement
2017 A-B Tech Perkins Grant
Workplace Learning helps to ensure a well-skilled pipeline for local industries. Components such as internships, special projects, mentoring, pre-apprenticeship, hybrid and registered apprenticeships, are integrated into our comprehensive programs through Workplace Learning.
"Partnerships between educational institutions and employers are also key... 'New class offerings are generally based on industry request and need,' explains Debbie Cromwell, the school’s workplace learning coordinator. 'We have increased our opportunity for students to participate in some form of workplace learning such as internships, special projects, pre-apprenticeships and apprenticeships.'"
