Resources for Work-Based Learning

The Job-Driven Vocational Rehabilitation Technical Assistance Center (JD-VRTAC) is the first place you should go to understand the value of work-based learning for business and job-seekers, how it is working in states across the U.S., and how to get started. The Customized Training Toolkit, hosted on describes several common approaches including: 
  • Community college training programs offering demand-driven training programs in partnership with local and regional employers. Colleges customize training based on the needs of an employer or a group of employers
  • Apprenticeships connecting job seekers with employer sponsors to provide them with paid work-based learning opportunities and academic instruction in a specific industry sector, like healthcare, manufacturing, or information technology. The goal is to connect employers with workers that meet their specific needs.
  • On-the-job training (OJT) taking place directly on the job site. Trainees learn how to perform critical tasks for their OJT employer with the goal of being hired on upon the completion of training. OJT may be used in conjunction with classroom training.
There are a wealth of strategies in the toolkit that will help you implement a Customized Training Program in your state. Want to learn more? Here are some examples/:
