Work-based learning is a program to provide students with a planned program of job training and other employment experiences related to a chosen career. There are six major recognized types of work-based learning experiences for secondary students in Michigan, as well as an additional school-related component, regarding the employment of minors as follows: 1) student/visitor, 2) volunteer, 3) work-based learning (non-CTE programs (paid and unpaid student learner), 4) work-based learning state-approved CTE programs (paid and unpaid student learner), 5) in-district/in-school placement (unpaid student learner), and 6) minor employee with a work permit. 

Depending on the type of learning experience, the pupil might be engaged for one hour, one day, one semester, or even one year in length. The learning experience may be paid or unpaid, serves all students, and can be an in-school or out-of-school placement. Specific elements of each of the six major types of work experiences are contained in a Work-Based Learning Opportunities Chart contained in this Guide.
