Work-based learning allows North Central students to develop critical employment skills while in high school and is one of the choices available for Indiana’s new Graduation Pathways. Many local employers have committed to providing high-impact opportunities to high school students through apprenticeships, internships, and/or direct employment. These partnerships help students learn valuable skills that are important to developing Indiana’s workforce. Through the Modern Apprenticeship program, students apply their classroom learning in a workplace environment, and gain practical experience along the way.  Students emerge from the MAP program with a high school diploma, a possible nationally-recognized credential, and college credits that equip them to enter the workforce or continue their education with confidence. They also gain the ability to make informed decisions regarding their futures and build a network of professional mentors and contacts to help them navigate their career choices.
