Project VISION: An Approach to a Model System of Occupational Employment Information.
The aim of Project VISION (Vocational Information System Involving Occupational Needs) is the development of a model system of local occupational and employment information involving current and prospective manpower resources and requirements. Discussed in this presentation are the background and environment of the project, and some past, current, and future research activities. Although the project had, as its only basic guideline, the development of a model system of local occupational employment information to meet the needs of vocational education in Wisconsin, other areas of research were identified through reviewing existing information, defining the needs of vocational education, and answering problems referred by others in the field. During the early part of Project VISION, attention was focused on the language problem existing between vocational educators and employment service personnel. Current research projects include: (1) reviewing population and labor force data to build a data system on future supply, (2) identifying patterns of occupational mobility, (3) determining occupational needs on the basis of new and expanding industries, (4) working with the Medvin Technique, and (5) doing a comprehensive employer survey.
