Identification of Issues Relating to the Role of Vocational Education in Serving Older Persons. Final Report.
Drewes, D. W.; Nerden, Joseph T.
The purpose of a project was to identify and explain the issues involved in formulating a role for vocational education in serving the employment-related training needs of older persons. The overall goal was to identify, analyze, describe, and disseminate information concerning policy and planing issues, service needs, service providers, alternative service models, and programmatic service occupations. The information would (1) lead to improved opportunities for obtaining vocational skills training and (2) enable older adults to serve in a manner utilizing their accumulated knowledge, skills, and experience. Major tasks were developing an information dissemination plan, conducting a literature review that resulted in a summary of the state-of-the-art, preparation and dissemination of a planning paper and program guide, production of an advocacy film, development of a promotional brochure, and conducting of four regional information dissemination workshops. (Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the report, include participant lists and agendas for project meetings and workshops, project correspondence, and workshop materials.) (YLB)
