WBL Overview

Welcome to Miller Grove High School Work-Based Learning Program 

See WBL Application for the 2022-2023
School year below

WBL makes the “real world” connection between school and work!

Work-Based Learning is learning that results from work experience designed to increase the knowledge and skills of the learner. The work experience is supplemented with instruction and activities that apply, reinforce, refine, or extend the learning that occurs during work, so that learners develop attitudes, knowledge, skills, and habits that might not develop solely from work experiences. Students continue to take coursework related to his/her career interest which is their career pathway while receiving on-the-job training in a structured workplace.  

Students participating in WBL will be classified as either ESD-Employability Skill Development, CO-OP-Cooperative Education, Internship and YAP-Youth Apprenticeship.

WBL enrollment takes place during a student’s senior year, BUT pre-qualification & scheduling starts during the junior year.
