Work-based learning is an educational approach that links learning in the workplace to learning in the classroom.
Learn how your company can benefit from this program at the Richmond Hill/Bryan County Chamber’s Coffee and Conversation from 8 to 9:30 a.m. March 2 at the Chamber office, 2591 Highway 17.
According to Richmond Hill High School program coordinator Suzanne Meadows, work-based learning may help students make career decisions, network with potential employers, select courses of study and develop job skills for future employment. Through the interaction of work and study, students can enhance their academic knowledge, personal development and professional preparation.
The program is supposed to engage students and promote their exposure and access to education and career opportunities. The program also benefits businesses, as focusing training helps employers reduce staff turnover by teaching future employees the skills they will need to succeed in the workplace.
Coffee and Conversation is complimentary to Chamber members and $15 for others. Reservations are required by Feb. 26. The Chamber provides the coffee and seating is limited. Call 912-756-3444 or email info@RHBCchamber.org to reserve a seat.
