Work Based Learning-Transition students 2016-2017

 

Learning outside of the Classroom takes on a whole new meaning for Felicia Riner’s Work Based Learning – Transition program participants at Lincoln County High school.  Students are given the opportunity to participate in community based hands on vocational training 1 hour per day, 4 days per week.  Ms. Riner with the assistance of Alisha Barnes, educational assistant, transports and oversees students as they explore and experience many different job and career fields within our community.  This program would not be what it is without our wonderful community partners.  During the 2016-2017 school year students have worked with the following community partners: Fayetteville/Lincoln County Animal Shelter, Fayetteville/Lincoln County Senior Center, Hampton Inn, Marvin’s Restaurant, Shoe Sensation and Walgreens.  During the 2015-2016 school year, initial placements for WBL-Transition included Shoney’s Restaurant and T & W Machine Shop. 

 

Students learn so much more from this program than they would sitting in the classroom or through mock work trials.  WBL experiences allow students to collaborate with local businesses to explore careers that interest them and gain valuable employability skills. By working with employers, students apply classroom instruction to real life opportunities, explore career options, and pursue personal and employment goals that prepare them for successful employment after high school. I have seen a huge difference in the students who participate in this program.  They are more eager about coming to school because they are excited about going to the job sites.  Their confidence, self-esteem and self-worth have improved due to their participation in this program.  They are broadening their horizons and reaching for the future.  All students must be prepared with skills necessary to compete and contribute meaningfully to their communities.  For most, this will mean completing some postsecondary education or training; for all, it will mean learning about themselves and the world of work.

 

Ms. Riner is still accepting community partners for 2016-2017 and for the future.  If you are interested or would like more information about the program and how to become a community partner, please contact Felicia Riner at friner@lcdoe.org.
