The Development of Career Ladders in Selected Occupational Programs.
Suver, J. Allen; And Others
The second phase of a curricular articulation project conducted as a coordinated effort among school districts, vocational-technical institutes, and community colleges involved in the Northeast Vocational Advisory Council (NEVAC) developed career ladders in three vocational program areas and a model useful to others developing similar ladders. The two subject areas identified for curricular exploration and development were data processing and accounting. A secretarial ladder developed in the first phase was further refined and validated. Instructors in each curricular area met with professionals from the field to develop career ladders, sample job titles, entry pay levels, and competency checklists for each step on the identified career ladders. These materials were validated in representative industries and by teachers providing training in the career field, and the process for dissemination and incorporation into programs was set in motion. (Appendixes, amounting to well over one-half of the report, include drafts and final versions of the career ladders and a sample competency checklist worksheet.) (YLB)
