Career Change: Implications for Vocational Education.
De Sanctis, Vincent, Comp.
The four papers in this document consider alternative programs and innovative models and techniques concerned with career change and its impact on vocational education. In the first paper, Jo Shuchat addresses the issue of what vocational education is or is not doing to accommodate the increasing interest women have for nontraditional job training, and provides practical tips for getting women into nontraditional vocational programs and keeping them. In the second paper, Thomas Scanlan describes a project on entrepreneurship education at the University of Illinois, and includes several examples of strategies that can be employed in entrepreneurship education. Michael Sugarman's paper examines the phenomenon of career change and then describes how technical education preparation programs can possibly identify potential instructors. The final paper, by Charles Ryan and Robert Drummond, presents a description and analysis of an attempt in Maine to institute a statewide computer information system for career guidnce. The papers were delivered at an open-invitation conference used as a strategy to identify attempts to consider the effects that the phenomenon of career change has on vocational education. (KC)
