The Nebraska Workplace Experiences Continuum
The Nebraska Workplace Experiences Continuum illustrates how learning experiences become more focused as a student progresses through their education. The Nebraska Workplace Experiences Continuum is organized into three levels of strategies and can be found at www.nebraskaworkplaceexperiences.com :
Work Awareness Strategies acquaint students with the world of work and potential career options available. These are usually school-based instructional assignments but should also encourage the student to explore careers in their local and regional communities.
Work Exploration Strategies deepen a student’s experiences with workplaces through contextual settings. These strategies connect the student with workers and workplaces through carefully designed interactions.
Work-Based Learning Strategies provide actual supervised on-the-job experiences for students to continue to develop their academic, technical and career readiness skills.
