Work-Based Learning Policy for Out-of-School Youth and Disadvantaged Adults: Toolkit

Work-based learning combines paid training at a work site with classroom education that leads to an industry-recognized credential. This National Skills Coalition toolkit provides resources to state policymakers and advocates who want to implement paid work-based learning programs for out-of-school youth and disadvantaged adults. The toolkit explains key policies that support work-based learning, provides examples of current state and local work-based learning practices, and provides a legislative template for state work-based learning policies. States can also use the toolkit to help align work-based learning policies with other workforce development strategies.
