Career Related Education (CRE) is structured age appropriate experiences which prepare students for the school-to-career transition. The range of CRE experiences begin with Career Awareness and Exploration in middle school and culminate with work-based learning during the tenth, eleventh and twelfth grades. Work-Based learning provides students the opportunity to be enrolled in an internship, cooperative education or youth apprenticeship.

Work-Based Learning placements represent the pinnacle of the Career-Related Education experience. To qualify for a WBL placement, a student must be in grades 11 or 12 and at least 16 years old. Students must also have a defined Career Pathway in order to participate in the Work-Based component of Career-Related Education. This is especially important for successful completion of a student's pathway in that their job placement is directly related to the curriculum of the Career Technical and Agricultural Education classes they have completed or in which they are concurrently enrolled. There are several opportunities for students to participate in a work-based learning. These opportunities include Cooperative Education, Internship, Youth Apprenticeship, and Clinical Experiences.
