High-Quality Work-Based Learning (HQWBL) is comprised of school-coordinated workplace experiences that are:

  • related to students’ career goals and/or interests
  • connected to a course, and
  • performed in partnership with local businesses and organizations.

HQWBL experiences enable students to apply classroom instruction in a real-world business or service-oriented work environment. The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) recognizes 12 HQWBL experiences. High-Quality Work-Based Learning Opportunities in Virginia (Word) gives a summary of the criteria for each WBL experience.
