Students who participate in work-based learning apply and reinforce the knowledge and skills they acquire in school. They learn the value of good work habits, practice essential interpersonal skills, and find school more relevant to their real-life needs. At the community college level, participating students are more likely than others to complete their studies, to graduate with lower school-related debt, and to find permanent employment after graduation. Winning Ways presents the surest routes to career success, as described by 25 highly regarded educators, public policy experts, and industrial trainers.
