Workplace learning is used to allow students to practice the knowledge and skills they acquire in the classroom within a “real-world” business or industry setting. The Simulated Workplace Project at West Bladen High School was implemented in Mrs. Elliott’s Family and Consumer Sciences classes during the first semester of this school year, according to a media post.
Simulated workplace learning aims to replicate workplace experiences by allowing students to immerse themselves in a realistic worksite activity without leaving campus. The West Bladen student-employees participated in activities that encouraged teamwork, leadership skills, time management, record keeping skills and more.
Students that achieved 100% of the company’s goals received certificates, Pay Day bars, and one free pass to a basketball game at the Castle. Mrs. Elliott and her classes thanked Principal Dr. Peggy Hester for introducing and supporting the Simulated Workplace Project.Share:
