Employing Nontraditional Students. A Model to Place Secondary Nontraditional Students in Training Related Occupations.
Shaffer, Kathy M.; Hubbs, Marguerite
Developed to assist vocational students, nontraditional by sex, in finding and keeping training-related jobs, this manual contains strategies for use by all vocational educators--instructors, administrators, and placement specialists. It is intended for use with potential employers, nontraditional and traditional vocational students, advisory council members, and others involved in the placement process. The strategies for student placement are presented in six stages: building a relationship with employers, diagnosis of employer needs, acquiring relevant resources and preparing students, choosing strategies (both employer and student) to enhance placement, gaining acceptance of nontraditional students as employees, and followup and program evaluation. Each stage is overviewed, and then activities are suggested and briefly described. A resource section lists resource people and organizations. (YLB)
