Work Experience Education (WEE)

Work Experience Education (WEE) is the bridge between the classroom and the world of work.  This elective course embraces all levels of competencies and academic achievements.  All students, including those with particular needs have the opportunity to strengthen the connection between school and work and to develop positive attitudes required for success.


In addition to on-the-job work experience, students are required to attend a weekly Work Experience Related Instruction class.  Students 16 years or older who are in grades 11-12 and who are employed at approved “work-for-pay” jobs, may be enrolled in Work Experience Education.  Students may enroll in one or two periods of Work Experience per semester and earn five to 10 elective credits per semester, for a total of 20 credits per year.


California and Federal Labor Codes allow minors enrolled in Work Experience Education to obtain more hours of work during the week.


WEE students can work:

  • a maximum of 8 hours per day on any non-school day or any evening preceding a non-school day
  • until 10 p.m. on a school night
  • past 10 p.m. on a school night with prior permission*
  • until 12:30 a.m. on any evening preceding a non-school day
  • until 12:30 a.m. on any day, with prior permission*
  • up to 48 hours total per week

*Working past 10 p.m. on a school night requires prior   permission of parent, Work   Experience teacher, and     employer.  (LC 1391.1)

WEE Requirements

To be eligible for enrollment in Work Experience Education, students must:

  • be16 to 18 years of age
  • be a junior or senior
  • have a legal job
  • be employed continuously throughout the semester
  • have and maintain a GPA of 2.0 or above
  • not have any attendance, tardy or disciplinary issues

8 Tips for Parents

How to prepare your teen for work:

1.  Encourage your teen to investigate jobs and careers. Talk about work and your job at the dinner table.

2.  Stress to your teen that for now, school is their work.  Attendance is important.

3.  Explore with your teen, without being judgmental, her or his personal talents, strengths, likes and dislikes.

4.  Help your teen experience first hand, as many different jobs, businesses and professions as possible.  Explore job shadowing, mentoring, "Take Our Daughters to Work Day", internships, youth apprenticeships, cooperative education.

5.  Provide as many opportunities as you can for your student to learn technology.

6.  Pressure your schools to expose students to career choices.

7.  Guide your teenage toward acquiring skills.

8.  Talk to your teen about work and career as a goal for her or his education.

Job interviews close with the question with the same five words: "Do you have any questions?"  This is information taken from a Yahoo Financially Fit article. 


1. What do you enjoy about working here?

2. What are your goals for the company in the next two years?

3. What skills do I need to have most to help the team?

4. If I were hired, what would you like to see me achieve in my first three to six months on the job?

5. Why is this position vacant?

6. Do you have any reservations in hiring me?


 You'll want to be as prepared as possible for your job interview.  

 SIT DOWN AND THINK ABOUT THE JOB, your experience and skills, and the questions the employer is likely to ask you.

 IT'S IMPORTANT TO BE ON TIME GETTING TO THE INTERVIEW.  While you're there, be courteous, respectful, and natural.

 BODY LANGUAGE IS IMPORTANT TOO.  Make contact, smile and sit up straight.

 RESEARCH: You'll make a much better impression if you can show that you know something about your potential employer--and the rest of the world.
