Work-Based Learning

Bulloch County Schools' Work-Based Learning program represents the pinnacle of our Career Technical and Agricultural Education programs. It allows qualified students who have mastered skills in career pathway areas the opportunity to work at an approved job placement to gain valuable work experience while receiving course credit.  A job placement may be a placement arranged by the school's work-based learning coordinator, the career pathway teacher, or an approved part-time job arranged by the student.

How to Apply for Work-Based Learning

To be considered for work-based learning, students must complete an application with the high school's work-based learning coordinator.  The application will be reviewed and ranked based on the student’s Career, Technical & Agricultural Education course completion, attendance, discipline, grade point average, and teacher recommendations.  Applications received after the due date will be ranked, placed on a waiting list, and considered if space is available in the program.
