Business-Industry-Labor Inputs in Vocational Education Personnel Development. Final Report.
Warmbrod, Catharine P.; Cap, Orest
A project was conducted to develop strategies for increasing use of business, industry, and labor inputs in vocational education personnel development programs. Ten institutions from ten states were selected to participate by an eight-member planning committee. The technical assistance needs of the selected institutions were determined, and training materials were developed, including a technical assistance handbook. A three-day technical assistance conference was held for thirty educational representatives from the ten states. The conference was conducted to capacitate team members from each institution to return to their states with specific information and realistic action plans to maximize business, industry, and labor inputs in vocational education personnel development. The predominant levels served were secondary and postsecondary. In addition to the technical assistance conference, a follow-up study was conducted to collect data documenting each team's progress. (The majority of this report contains appended information, such as conference and meeting agendas, the evaluation report of the technical assistance conference, evaluation instruments, the states' plans of action, and the states' implementation reports.)
