Final Report of Project V.G.I.P., July 1, 1980-June 30, 1981.
Educational Improvement Center-South, Sewell, NJ.
Designed to help South Jersey school districts address the vocational developmental needs of their secondary gifted students, the Vocational Guidance/Instructional Program for Gifted/Talented Vocational Students (Project VGIP) involved a flexible consortium and development of a handbook of vocational counseling and teaching strategies for gifted vocational students. (Following an assessment of the counseling and instructional needs of gifted vocational students via the I-Gate Survey of South Jersey Gifted and Talented Programs and the Career Development Needs Survey, a total of 10 South Jersey counselors and educators participated in inservice training programs at four sites.) Project activities conducted during the inservice training program included a 10-day planning and development session, identification of the student population, administration of a needs assessment for each district community, and evaluation of the product developed. Participants in the inservice training program acquired the skills to facilitate a team approach for development of a model vocational guidance and instructional program for gifted vocational students in their own districts. Evaluation of the project by an evaluation consultant, a curriculum consultant, and project participants indicated that the combination of inservice training, consortium-developed products, and dissemination of the products was highly cost effective and efficient.
