Guides geared toward small businesses developing work-based learning.

Work-based learning models offer employers an opportunity to develop a skilled local workforce, providing them with many benefits, including: 

  • Short-term productivity increases 
  • A boost in performance through a diverse workforce
  • An enhanced appeal to investors 
  • Stronger connections to the local community 

To help build these partnerships in communities across America, Jobs for the Future developed a guide geared toward small businesses interested in offering work-based learning, as well as a guide and a deck for workforce and education practitioners seeking to engage in work-based learning with small businesses.
