CHA Releases Health Facility Work-Based Learning Program Guide

CHA, in partnership with the California Department of Education, has created the Health Facility Work-Based Learning Program Guide in response to requests from hospitals for information, tools and tips for partnering with local K-12 educational institutions. The guide’s purpose is to provide a resource for all health care employers (not just hospitals) seeking work-based learning partnerships with local K-12 institutions. Not only is it intended to be used by employers developing new partnerships, it can also serve as a valuable tool for existing work-based learning programs. The guide features a spectrum of model employer/K-12 partnerships that serve as real life examples of successful programs. It also includes turn-key forms and documents that can be used when developing a program, as well as links to additional information. The guide is attached.
