Work-Based Learning Information 
(Formerly Professional Learning Experience)

The “Work Based Learning” (WBL) experience will help connect technical skill development at the application level to authentic industry-related experiences for the individual student learner across all fields and pathways.  The goal for every Olathe District student is to use their secondary experiences to further define their post-secondary plans.  Through involvement in one of Olathe’s CTE (Career & Technical Education) programs, 21st Century Academies, or 2-year OATC (Olathe Advanced Technical Center) Programs, we offer to qualified seniors a capstone Work Based Learning experience (WBL) to enhance skill development, attain a certification, license or degree and experience greater student success in the 21st century workforce.
