Vocational Education Leadership Training Program. Final Report.
Racster, A.B.; Tolbert, R.H.
A total of 21 persons, including area vocational-technical school directors, coordinators of post-secondary instruction, and supervisors of area high school programs, participated in the program aimed at preparing directors and coordinators of secondary and post-secondary vocational education programs. The 20-month training period was divided into three phases: Phase I concerned the development of basic understandings of overall responsibilities and involved visits to vocational education programs, lectures, and discussion group meetings. Phase II was a 3-week institute on the university campus designed to help trainees (1) study the various professional problems faced by a vocational education administrator, (2) examine supervision and administration, and (3) study administrative practices and principles related to program organization, coordination of the instructional program, and personnel management. Phase III was an internship in administration. Some of the accomplishments indicated by the trainees were: (1) a working knowledge of a comprehensive program as a basis for planning local programs, (2) knowledge of administrative responsibilities and related professional problems, and (3) practice in applying administrative principles and practices in on-going programs.
