A GUIDE TO THE FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION CENTERS IN NORTH CAROLINA, A REPORT OF A STUDY OF THE NORTH CAROLINA INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION CENTERS.
EMERSON, LYNN A.
A STATEWIDE SYSTEM FOR POST-HIGH SCHOOL PREEMPLOYMENT AND EXTENSION TRAINING IN TECHNICAL AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IN THE FORM OF INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION CENTERS WAS BEGUN IN 1958. THIS GUIDE INCLUDES A STATUS REPORT ON THE CENTERS, AN EXAMINATION OF THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS THEY SHOULD MEET, AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THEIR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT AND IMPROVEMENT. FOUR TYPES OF PROGRAMS ARE BEING OFFERED -- TRADE AND TECHNOLOGY, MACHINE OPERATOR TRAINING, SUPERVISORY TRAINING, AND UPDATING FOR EMPLOYED ADULTS. FULL-TIME, EXTENSION, AND PART-TIME CURRICULUMS ARE OFFERED FOR TECHNICIANS, SKILLED CRAFTSMEN, TECHNICAL SPECIALISTS, AND SKILLED SPECIALISTS. INCREASED MANPOWER NEEDS SERVED AS A MAJOR BASIS FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF PROGRAMS FOR THE 20 CENTERS. PROGRAM ALLOCATIONS WERE BASED ON -- (1) THE GEOGRAPHICAL SPREAD OF EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES, (2) ESTABLISHED OR PLANNED PROGRAMS IN EXISTING CENTERS, (3) STUDENT POTENTIAL, AND (4) HOUSING ACCOMMODATIONS FOR STUDENTS. RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDE -- (1) CONCENTRATION ON ADULT AND POST-HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL, (2) EXPANSION OF PROGRAMS INTO NEW FIELDS, (3) ESTABLISHMENT OF STATE-WIDE COMPETENCY EXAMINATIONS, (4) INITIATION OF STUDENT RECRUITMENT PROGRAMS, AND (5) ACCREDITATION OF CURRICULUMS. EMPLOYMENT DATA FROM THE MANPOWER STUDY ARE INCLUDED. (EM)
