Work Based Learning

Work Based Learning (WBL) for young people is a general name for government funded schemes which give work-based training to 16-18 year old people.
It is made up of:

• apprenticeship programmes
• National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) training in England
• Foundation Learning
• preparatory training
• the right to time off for study or training 

Training programmes might be a mix of work experience, on-the-job training or off-the-job training. There is no minimum or maximum length of time that a programme runs and it can be full time or part time. However, a young person on a WBL programme must be given the opportunity to get a qualification at, or the same as, National Vocational Qualification level 2.
In England, WBL is run by the Young People's Learning Agency.
