Vocational Cooperative Education Handbook.
Western Michigan Univ., Kalamazoo. Dept. of Distributive Education.
As part of the Cooperative Vocational Professional Development and Training Project, this handbook has been developed to help vocational cooperative education coordinators in Michigan to cope with new and expanding work programs in the community, and new and expanding federal and state laws, rules, and regulations. Following an introduction to the Project and a rationale for this guide, the manual is organized in eight units. The first unit contains the five duties of a cooperative vocational education coordinator; for each duty there is a list of tasks for coordinators. These duties and tasks are covered in units 2-7: coordination, professional development, guidance, administration, public relations, and program guidelines. Each task is outlined on a separate sheet which provides the duty, the task, a narrative description of the task, achievement indicators, criteria for competence, and forms and resources required. Forms are supplied where needed. Following the six duty units, the manual contains a glossary and a unit on resources such as agencies, literature, state laws and regulations, and federal legislation. Appendixes to the guide contain cooperative education coordinator surveys, employer surveys, and questionnaire. The manual is in loose-leaf format for easy use. It is expected that the guide will be helpful for the professional development and the day-to-day activities of vocational cooperative education coordinators. (KC)
