Employer-based programs provide training opportunities in career areas that are not available at the St. Clair TEC facility. Employer-based students receive training at an assigned location from personnel employed there. Students are considered trainees and do not receive pay. Students must complete all state competencies and regularly report to TEC to complete the curriculum requirements.
A School-to-Work coordinator makes regular visits to the sites. Students follow a pre-established curriculum, daily attendance is recorded, and letter grades are issued for performance.
Students must provide their own transportation to their assigned training site. All employer-based students must submit an up-to-date Educational Development Plan to their high school counselor before being placed in an Employer-based Program. A parent/student orientation meeting is required.
