Simulated Work Place
What is Simulated Workplace?
The West Virginia Department of Education has worked with committee experts from numerous businesses
and industries throughout West Virginia to design Simulated Workplace. This new educational initiative
has been created to assist schools in implementing workplace environmental protocols that align with West Virginia
workforce requirements, including random drug testing, professionalism, attendance and safety. Simulated Workplace has
not only enhanced instructional delivery of career education, but has created a more engaged career and technical student.
The simulated workplace environment permits students the opportunity to take ownership of their individual performance as it
impacts the overall success of their education, while thriving in an authentic workplace culture. Simulated Workplace also
encourages local business and industry experts to join onsite review teams to assist schools in meeting their workforce
needs and expectations
