Applications for work-based learning classes at the Career and Technical Education Center close Friday. Information on how to apply can be found on the CTE Center’s website.

Students can apply for work-based learning for many different pathways, and the prerequisite and application requirements vary. 

“Students who participate in Work Based Learning opportunities are able to gain real world experience by working within the industry of their career pathway,” CTE Center counselor Stacy Purl said. “FISD has various community partnerships that allow students to apply the knowledge that they have learned in the courses leading up to a Work Based Learning Course.”

Along with the work-based programs at the CTE Center, the deadline for students to apply to the Collin College Dual Credit Clinical Program is Friday.

“I’m applying for Practicum in Health Science because I’ve heard its a more in depth version of CNA and they start their clinical rounds earlier as well,” junior Eva Soto said. “I’ve been working on the application since December, and I’m ready to submit it.”

For all pathways, the work-based learning program provides students an opportunity to get experience in fields they may want to pursue in the future.

“I decided to apply because it provides more challenging and realistic experience, and the program will help me gain some experience in a law office,” Immedisetty said. “It’s also a great opportunity for me to contact lawyers in the area and have some outreach.”
