Career Development Program Guide. A Guide to the Implementation Process for Career Development Programs.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Vocational, Adult, and Community Education.
This guide for implementing career development programs planned at the local level is adapted from the National Career Guidance and Counseling Guidelines published by the National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee. Introductory materials include a guide for assessing district readiness to begin planning for career development programs and an article, "Concepts of Implementing Career Guidance in Florida" (Robert Reardon), which outlines the development of career guidance and counseling and presents a model of career counseling delivery systems. Section 1, on student competencies, includes an overview and a detailed list of competencies with student performance indicators for elementary, sixth grade, seventh-eighth grade, and high school. Section 2 details the five steps of the local planning procedure needed to begin a program in career development. They are: (1) organize for implementation; (2) establish local standards; (3) improve the program; (4) implement the program; and (5) evaluate the program. Each part concludes with a checklist of tasks within that step. The appendix has two parts: (1) a set of 16 procedural charts; and (2) information and resource listings organized by category. Materials in the appendix are referenced in the implementation section and highlighted. The titles of the materials in the appendix are listed along with the page numbers. Procedural charts and guidelines are suitable for duplication. Also provided are lists of state department of education and state occupational information coordinating committees. (YLB)
