• Work-based learning experiences provide "hands-on" workplace opportunities for students to study more complex subject matter and workplace skills. Work-based learning experiences available in Rock Hill School District 3 are apprenticeships, co-ops, internships, shadowing (virtual and on site), school-based enterprise, service learning, structured field trip and WBL credit bearing course.

    Shadowing is a one-day experience where students get an initial overview of a career field. Students need to see their Career Specialist to arrange this opportunity.

    Semester experiences include Internships, Cooperative Education (Coop), and Apprenticeships. Internships allow students to develop skills in a career area of interest. Cooperation Education experiences provide students who have taken a high school career and technology education program to expand their skill level on the job under the supervision of an employer. Apprenticeships can also be developed with students and employers.

    Service learning is another form of work-based learning. Students use the knowledge and skills learned in school settings to assist community service organizations. Volunteerism, citizenship, "soft skills," and job-specific skills are reinforced through these connecting activities.
