Work Based Learning
Work-Based Learning is an invaluable educational approach that allows students to gain a firsthand understanding of the essential skills and knowledge required for success in the professional world. At the EACC, WBL preparation encompasses a comprehensive range of activities, including participation in employability skills panels, mock interviews, workplace tours, and industry presentations. For students who meet the necessary criteria, the opportunity to engage in job shadows and internships is extended, further enhancing their experiential learning journey.
For most programs, EACC students will traditionally complete a 2-week Job Shadow during Year 1, followed by an Internship during Year 2. Internships can be semester-long or year-long. Training plans for internships are established by instructors and employers to ensure classroom learning and student interest are applied in a work setting.
