Explore work-based courses in action as Chris Sapp, electrical supervisor at OMICO Plastics, trains work-based students in electrical troubleshooting on the factory floor, in this video from Jobs for the Future (JFF). As a seasoned company supervisor, Sapp is a technical expert. In his mentoring role, he provides real-life learning opportunities—teachable moments—that are tied to the academic instruction workers receive in their community college classrooms. Sapp helps guide the students through the process and answers any questions they might have. The students also bring questions from their work experiences into the classroom. This resource is especially useful for employer supervisors and college faculty.
