Handbook for Cooperative Work Experience Coordinators in Oregon.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
This handbook is designed to assist those responsible for managing cooperative work experience programs at Oregon high schools and community colleges. The coordinator's responsibilities have been broken down into specific tasks and the steps for successfully completing each. These are grouped under the following subheadings: (1) administration (planning, organizing, financing, and evaluating); (2) guidance and placement (recruiting students, monitoring their progress, and assisting with employment applications); (3) coordination (locating training sites, completing agreements, correlating school activities with training); (4) public relations (informing community, students, and employers about the program); (5) professional development (participation in state and local workshops and organizations). Separate chapters provide a glossary of terms and definitions, legal requirements, educational requirements, resources, and guidelines for planning and implementation. This final chapter, intended for planners of new programs, includes flow charts, checklists, and examples that focus on planning and implementation of work experience. (TE)
