Work Based Learning Opportunities
In Beaufort County School District, eligible students have opportunities to explore Career & Technology programs that will assist in the preparation of career choices and life-long learning.
A Work-Based Learning Experience (non-credit bearing) occurs when the student is enrolled in a Career and Technology Education (CATE) course and participates in a short-term work-based experience (such as structured field trip, school-based enterprise, job shadowing, internship, mentoring, service learning, etc.). The work-based learning experience is short-term in nature, and provides an opportunity for learning as part of a CATE course.
A Work-Based Learning Course (credit-bearing) is a structured, stand-alone course that is taken within a CATE Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP)-coded program. Each work-based learning course (credit bearing) has an assigned CATE course code. Guidelines must be followed in order to award the Carnegie unit of credit upon successful completion of the course. https://ed.sc.gov/instruction/career-and-technology-education/career-guidance/work-based-learning/
