Vocational Education's Role in Impacting on Adult Unemployment and Job Mobility.
Reid, Charles L., III
In order to impact on unemployment of adults and to increase job mobility, the following needs must be met: an increased number of adequate delivery systems; improved teacher education and guidance and counseling programs; early exposure to career development with equal, if not greater, emphasis placed on vocational education; identification of client needs, specifically the needs of the currently unemployed and members of special needs groups; and high visibility from a publicity and media standpoint. Close relationships must be established among the education community, legislative community, and employment community so that (1) forecasting systems for future job needs can be developed; (2) the needs of the unemployed, employees, and employers can be identified; and (3) both long-range and short-term programs can be developed to meet these needs.
