Vocational Guidance Seminar. A Report of a Summer Project for Administrators, Counselors, and Teachers.
Four regional workshops in vocational guidance were designed to inform and update school counselors, teachers, and administrators concerning the working conditions, requirements, and opportunities in business, industry and the service occupations for certain industrial areas in Indiana, namely Evansville, Hammond, New Albany, and Wabash. Each seminar consisted of a 3-week intensive course in which businesses, industries, and various services were visited and discussions were held with management, personnel directors, and on-the-job personnel. The specific objectives included: (1) to help counselors more fully understand the relationship between the school curriculum and vocational opportunities in community, (2) to acquaint counselors with occupational information materials, the sources and effective utilization of such materials, and (3) to prepare school counselors to relate understandings of vocational offerings and vocational opportunities to students -- therby providing sound vocational counseling.
