Florida Extern Leadership Training Program for Local Administrators of Vocational Education. 1982-1983 Final Report.
Mohamed, Dominic A.
The Florida Extern Leadership Training Program for Local Administrators of Vocational Education was conceived to meet the need for trained and certified leadership personnel in vocational education at the local level throughout Florida. During the third year of the project's operation, project staff implemented a training program to meet state certification requirements. The program was based on an individualized instructional delivery system that involved the use of self-directed modules, supportive audiovisual aids, and supervised clinical and technical field experiences. The target group for the 1982-83 program included noncertified county directors, area center directors, noncertified community and junior college occupational deans and directors, principals of comprehensive high schools, and State Department of Education consultants. Participants in this extern program participated in a summer workshop and in weekend seminars during the academic year. Thirty-six of the 38 individuals enrolled in the program received certificates of completion. The comments of those participating in the program were generally favorable. (This report includes a discussion of the 1982-83 program; reports on each of the monthly project meetings; an external evaluation of the program; as well as various project-developed correspondence, forms, charts, and feedback instruments.)
