Career-Based Learning (CBL) is an educational strategy that connects students with business professionals to provide them with real-life insight into potential careers. It is designed to help students combine what they learn in the classroom with essential workforce skills to develop their employability.
As more and more career sectors face talent gaps, CPS is poised to help meet industry talent needs through the Employment Pipeline programs. Area businesses can elect to partner with the district to train and employ students during their senior year in high school. In addition to industry-specific training, students also get an opportunity to learn about financial literacy and employability skills that will make them successful in their careers. The goal is that students walk away with in-demand skills and a job offer upon completion.
