Work Based Learning

Work-Based Learning courses are available to junior and senior students. Students attend classes where they discuss the skills needed to be successful in the workplace, including teamwork, communication skills, time management, successful workplace attitudes, and problem solving. In addition, students create a resume, learn how to conduct themselves during a job interview and review Child Labor Laws. Students are required to attend a work-based learning seminar held every other week. Students must also complete the required forms, assignments, and workplace hours to receive credit.

To complete their registration, a student must:

  1. Turn in completed application and meet with Jan Jardine to have the class put in your schedule.
  2. Students registering for an internship need to complete a related course before placement, i.e. students who would like to intern at the hospital must complete a semester of Physiology with a B average.
  3. Students registering for work experience must have a job for the entire semester. They must receive a company paycheck, and the check stub needs to include the student’s name, pay period, hours worked, and taxes paid. Students must work a minimum of five hours per week.

RELATED WORK-BASED LEARNING (CTE)

Students must have a job prior to registering. Students may not have a job where they work for their parents out of the family home. Students are required to attend a work-based learning seminar held every other week. Students must also complete the required forms, assignments, and work place hours to receive credit. Work experience is available for the first or last period of the day (1st, 2nd, 7th, 8th period). Transportation to and from the worksite is the responsibility of the student and parent.

WK SKILLS/CTE INTERNSHIP (CTE)

This program enables qualified junior and senior students to train (usually non-paid) with one of Provo’s businesses to or on-campus with a teacher or office staff. Students attend class every other week where they discuss skills needed to be successful in the workplace. Curriculum is developed with input from business sponsors. The program was developed to give students on-the-job experience in an occupation related to their career interests. Transportation to and from the internship is the responsibility of the student and parent.
