Mohamed, Dominic A.
The Florida Preservice/Inservice Training Program for Local Administrators of Vocational Education is a competency-based program that was developed in 1981-1982 to provide a means of meeting the state certification needs of present vocational administrators as well as the inservice needs of presently certified local vocational administrators and the training and certification needs of future vocational administrators. Based upon the extern model of staff development, the program utilizes a series of planned, regularly scheduled meetings involving on-site exposure to exemplary programs or operations together with presentations and seminars dealing with topics selected by participants to enhance their skills and knowledge to deal with local problems. In addition, the program features mediated instruction as well as criterion-referenced, self- and peer-evaluation. (Included in this report are a detailed outline of the design of the extern program, a summary of its advantages, reports of six statewide training sessions held between October 1981 and August 1982, an external evaluation of the project, lists of general school and vocational administrator competencies, and various forms and materials developed during the project.)
