Work Programs for Students in Franklin County

Attention students at Franklin County and Huntland high schools if you need a job there’s good news for you. A Work-Based Learning (WBL) program at both schools is bridging the gap between high school and high-demand careers in Tennessee.

Students build on classroom-based instruction to develop employability skills that prepare them for success in postsecondary education and future careers.

Through experiences like internships, apprenticeships, college tours, and paid work experience, juniors and seniors may earn high school credit for WBL experiences, as well as hours for Tennessee Promise. 

The students are placed in positions that are of interest to them, giving them the opportunity to gain experience for their future careers. In addition to work readiness skills, students are also introduced to life skills that will ready them for life after graduation.  Students prepare for their driver’s permit test and are taken to the DMV, as well as learning how to budget their money.

We also work with students from the Comprehensive Development Classes, teaching them work and social skills by cleaning tables in the cafeteria and working in the Rebel Store. This gives the students experience for the future in restaurant and retail positions. The program has also partnered with
Waste Management to initiate a recycling program at FCHS.
