The Importance of Work-Based (WBL) and Industry-Based (IBL) Learning


Pennsylvania’s economic future depends on having a well-educated and skilled workforce prepared to meet the current and projected demands of a global, 21st century economy. To help meet this challenge, Quaker Valley High School is committed to ensuring all students have access to opportunities that prepare them for meaningful engagement in postsecondary education, in workforce training, in career pathways, and as responsible, involved citizens.  Regardless of their individual postsecondary plans, all students should graduate from high school with the knowledge, skills, and experiences needed to succeed in learning, work, and life.


To support students in making meaningful connections between their interests, strengths, and skills and the world of work, students will engage with one or more of the WBL and IBL opportunities from the list below that best meets their current education and post-high school planning needs.  WBL and IBL opportunities meet the graduation requirement in Experiential Learning.
