The Career Life Assessment Skills Series (C.L.A.S.S.): A Program to Meet Adult Development Needs. Final Report
Curtin, Bernadette M.; Hecklinger, Fred
The Career Life Assessment Skills Series (CLASS) project was designed to increase the career, self-assessment, and counseling programs available to adults in the Northern Virginia area. Workshops, audiovisual materials, and booklets were developed by Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC) on the following eight topics considered necessary for the fulfillment of the vocational and educational needs of area adults: your unique self, job market investigation, job campaign strategies, job keeping and revitalization, the federal employment process, academic survival skills, mid-life and career transitions, and pre-retirement planning. This project report begins by describing the goals and design of CLASS and the adult population at which the project was targeted. Next, a chronological time schedule covering August 1980 through June 1981 outlines the CLASS activities. The results and accomplishments of the project are then delineated in the areas of fall, winter, and spring 1980-81 workshops; the development of booklets and audiovisual materials; acquisition of written materials; publicity; professional development opportunities; travel and outreach; and project evaluation. The final section presents conclusions, implications, and recommendations. Extensive appendices contain publicity fliers, resource lists for the eight workshop and booklet topics, a news release, a guide to resources at NVCC's Career Center, and a workshop evaluation form.
