Experience, Reflection, Learning. Suggestions for Organisers of Schemes of Unified Vocational Preparation.
United Vocational Preparation (UVP) is a scheme or strategy organized in England to assist young people to make successful progress during the transition from school to work. It consists of courses and assistance to young workers on an individualized basis. This guide is intended to help educators to construct and conduct schemes of UVP. The document is organized in three parts. Part 1 is composed of five sections which deal with the essentials of UVP. Such questions as What is UVP? Who are served by UVP? Why UVP? How should programs be designed? and What approaches and teaching methods are appropriate? are answered in this part. In Part 2, a model of the learning process is suggested which enables one to discuss it without prejudging where any learning should take place or who should be responsible for facilitating it. Some existing approaches are described in terms of this model, and frameworks are suggested within which learning objectives can be derived, checked for balance, and then analyzed in order to indicate appropriate methods of teaching and learning. Part 3 is concerned with a variety of issues which usually arise in the course of implementing a scheme of UVP, such as the organization of the program, staffing, staff development, location and length of program, residential period, counseling, the composition of groups, evaluation of course and participants, resources, and marketing.
