WBL Information

Dobyns-Bennett High School recognizes that classroom learning provides only part of the content knowledge and skills development students need for success in college, career, and life. Work-Based Learning Programs are structured educational experiences that integrate classroom learning (school-based) with productive, structured work experiences (work-based), which are related to a student’s career goal, program of study, and employability skills. These programs include internships, apprenticeships, co-ops, shadowing experiences, guest speakers and business tours, the possibilities are endless.
We had a great time at Career Quest TN at ETSU. Students had hands on experiences in Health Care, IT, Construction and Advanced Manufacturing.
