Carvell, Fred; And Others
This project was conducted to improve the quality and availability of information pertaining to opportunities in nontraditional occupations for use by teachers, counselors, and interested students. The major project objectives were (1) to review current employment patterns in California to identify nontraditional occupations; (2) to collect and analyze useful information about the possible and extraordinary job demands related to psychological, social, and physical requirements of nontraditional occupations; and (3) to assemble the information revealed by the research into a helpful format suited for use by teachers, counselors, and interested students. Provisions were made for collecting both factual and attitudinal information from educators, students, employers, and employees. Factual data were related to employment statistics and enrollment data for vocational programs in secondary schools and community colleges. Attitudinal information was related to ideas and opinions obtained from persons interviewed. All major study objectives were attained within the timeline and resources allocated. (Appended are sample interview guides, statistical data, lists of participants, a sample copy of reviewer comment sheet, and a sample copy of the dissemination brochure for the guidebook.) (BM)
