CTE Work-Based Learning Course
Fall 2023 Update
This professional development course is expected to open for enrollment no later than the close of business Friday, September 8th, 2023.
This course introduces basic laws, rules, and procedures relevant to teaching Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses that involve work-based learning (WBL) at the secondary school level in Texas. Because state and federal laws change frequently, it also explains how to find current laws, rules, and guidelines related to WBL. WBL provides students opportunities to learn technical, academic and employability skills. WBL is employer driven and prepares students for their future career. WBL is a critical component of a high-quality CTE program. Teachers will learn what authentic WBL is and how to ensure students learn the skills and knowledge appropriate for their career pathway through collaborative partnerships with education service centers, workforce development boards, community-based organizations, and local employers. After successful completion of this course, participants can print a certificate of completion.
