OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING FOR TOMORROW'S WORLD OF WORK. NUMBER 5, UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS.
POND, MARTIN T.
UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS OF AN OCCUPATIONAL NATURE MAY BE CLASSED AS FULL OR PART COLLEGIATE PROGRAMS, NONCOLLEGIATE SHORT COURSES, SPECIALIZED SHORT COURSES, CONFERENCES, OR EXTENSION COURSES. THE COLLEGIATE PROGRAMS ARE USUALLY 2 YEARS IN LENGTH AND ARE DESIGNED FOR STUDENTS WHO DO NOT HAVE THE TIME, FINANCES, OR DESIRE TO COMPLETE A 4-YEAR PROGRAM. NONCOLLEGIATE SHORT COURSES RANGE IN LENGTH FROM 2 TO LESS THAN 1 YEAR AND A SEQUENCE OF INSTRUCTION FOR SPECIFIC TYPES OF WORK. SPECIALIZED SHORT COURSES ARE USUALLY FOR UPGRADING PURPOSES. CONFERENCES ARE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR GROUPS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE GENERALLY EMPLOYED IN A RELATED FIELD. EXTENSION COURSES ARE ORGANIZED BY LAND-GRANT COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES THROUGH THEIR COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICES TO PROVIDE INFORMATION AND TRAINING WHICH MAY LEAD TO BETTER OCCUPATIONAL ADJUSTMENT. THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERIZE THESE PROGRAMS -- (1) THE LONGER PROGRAMS ISSUE CERTIFICATES OR DEGREES UPON COMPLETION, (2) STUDENTS TEND TO BE IN THEIR LATE 20'S, (3) THE COURSES ARE PROBABLY OFFERED AT A BRANCH, (4) ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS ARE SIMILAR TO 4-YEAR COLLEGE PROGRAMS, (5) EXISTING FACILITIES ARE OFTEN USED, (6) COURSES MAY BE COSTLY TO STUDENTS, (7) THE TEACHERS HAVE COLLEGE DEGREES, AND (8) PROGRAMS CAN BE FLEXIBLE BUT CHANGES REQUIRE ABOUT 2 YEARS. OTHER ALTERNATIVES FOR VOCATIONAL TRAINING ARE DISCUSSED IN VT 001 353 - VT 001 356 AND VT 001 358. (EM)
