Partnerships, Internships, and Work-Based Learning

Skagit, whatcom, and north snohomish

NCTA values our many educational and industrial partnerships, which allow us to offer a content-rich learning environment to our students, both within the classroom and via work-based experiences.  NCTA offers a content-rich learning environment, and a unique opportunities of connection between students and local industry to enrich the student learning experience. 

Work-Based Learning (WBL) and Worksite Learning (WSL) are instructional strategies that provide students with career exploration opportunities and hands-on learning where knowledge gained in NCTA's courses can be applied to real-life work experiences. It bridges the gap between education and the working world by preparing students for future careers. WBL and WSL are beneficial for all students but can be especially useful for students from low-income backgrounds and students who may not have access to career exposure, educational opportunities, professional networks, and social capital that often play a critical role in career success.
