Guidelines for School-Based Job Placement Programs.
This document, developed in Pennsylvania, contains guidelines formulated to provide local school districts and vocational/technical schools with step-by-step procedures that will assist in the development and implementation of successful job placement programs. The guide is organized in five chapters. The first chapter introduces the project, defining terms, supplying goals/objectives of and rationale for job placement programs, describing components of placement programs, listing representative job titles for placement program staff, and previewing the rest of the publication. Chapter 2 addresses the problems encountered when a local education agency undertakes the task of program planning from ground zero, and suggests means of developing a plan, selecting staff and advisory committee, and program promotion. Chapter 3 outlines recommended strategies for developing the pre-employment skills dimension of a total job placement program, and includes suggestions for validating, promoting, and evaluating the pre-employment skills program curriculum. In chapter 4, activities required for developing a placement service that assists students in identifying sources of employment, applying for jobs, and succeeding in job situations are detailed; while in chapter 5, the user is given a description of procedures helpful in developing the final phase of a placement program, including recommendations for establishing surveys and program improvement. A bibliography is included in the guide. (KC)
