What Is Work-Based Learning?

Work-Based Learning (WBL) is an academic program that combines classroom studies with on-the-job, career-related work experience. Our goal for our students that participate in the Work-Based Learning Program is to provide them with not only the curriculum to succeed but also with the hands-on and on-site experience they will need to succeed in the workforce in their projected field.

Pictured below is Ajai Barrett, one of the many success stories from VGCC's WBL program. She was hired at the Franklin County Clerk of Court before she even finished her studies at VGCC! Congratulations Ajai!
