Career Education: Collaboration with the Private Sector. Information Series No. 246.
Bhaerman, Robert D.
This paper reviews three aspects of career education-private sector collaboration: (1) the general and specific approaches that have been utilized during the past 10 years by the career education movement and the private sector in developing career education collaboration in the private sector; (2) the major results of these activities, focusing on the advantages of as well as the problems with collaboration; and (3) the suggested guidelines under which future positive collaboration might occur. Following the introduction, which provides definitions of career education and collaboration, the first section examines several career education-collaboration surveys, along with a development strategy for collaborative councils. In the second section, benefits from and barriers to collaboration in the past are explored, both from the academic and from the business and industry viewpoints. In the third section, recommendations and guidelines are presented. These guidelines come from the Education Commission of the States, from the business community, and from the U.S. Office of Career Education; some refer to collaborative councils. A review section and a list of observations and impressions follow. Appended material includes examples of implementation strategies for career education collaboration. References and additional readings complete the paper. (CT)
