Semiprofessional Training Projects, Syracuse, NY.
Two phases (the experimental phase and the redirection and polishing phase) of a three-phase program for the inservice training of paraprofessional school personnel have been completed. Based on a career line approach, the program was designed to feature a relaxed selection criteria and personal counseling visits for trainees, college accredited training designed to familiarize trainees with the American educational system and specific subject areas related to their jobs, patterns for relating training to job definitions, evaluation techniques for measuring the affective and cognitive impact of the program on trainees, a sequential course development plan designed for career levels, an individual-situational approach to defining roles for training, a relevant training program as identified by the needs of trainees, workshops for increasing the mutuality of role perception between teachers and trainees, a helping relationship between teachers and paraprofessionals, programs to decrease rejection of paraprofessionals, and differentiated task assignments and a team training approach to help career mobility. Projections for the third phase of the project are based on the first two phases and call for an increased number of consultant services to help maintain the project and meet the objectives which had not been met in the first two phases.
