Workplace Tours

A workplace tour brings students to a workplace to learn more about a company and its industry, observe employees in their normal work routines, and ask questions of employees.  More than a simple field trip or site visit, a workplace tour is designed and structured to meet specific learning outcomes, be educationally rich, and build awareness of the business, it’s industry sector, its role in the economy, and the career options it provides. A workplace tour is conducted at a workplace for small groups and involves preparation and follow-up in the classroom. Workplace tours can include both walking tours of the workplace and sit-down presentations by employees about their work.
