Model Graduate Program in Occupational Education. A Cooperative Study.
Ramp, Wayne; Anderson, Edward
The purpose of this research project was to develop a competency-based model graduate program for administrators of vocational education in Illinois. Directed through the joint efforts of two universities, the project involved the identification of 158 administrative competencies and an assessment of how these competencies might be achieved. Other objectives of the study include: (1) determining the feasibility of granting graduate credit for field experience, internship, or proficiency in administration, (2) identifying the problems attendant on cooperative efforts by two or more universities in offering joint graduate Programs, (3) determining the feasibility of implementing the model program as part of existing programs within the university structures in Illinois, and (4) identifying component parts of the model program which may be used for developing inservice workshops. A major recommendation of the study states that the 158 competencies should be used to develop a graduate program for vocational education administrators. (JS)
