Comprehensive Career Guidance Program. A Guide for Program Development.
This document presents South Carolina's Comprehensive Career Guidance Program for kindergarten through grade 12. The model presented provides a framework for local districts to use in evolving a program to meet the specific career development needs of their district's students. It attempts to organize, expand, and extend competency-based career development strategies, activities, and experiences to assist students in making realistic career goal plans and apprise them of how to use the public schools' curriculum and experiences to further their career goals. Career development is described as the fifth basic skill (in addition to language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science) that students need to prepare themselves for constructive participation in society. The Comprehensive Career Guidance Program is depicted as evolving around three interrelated domains (self-knowledge, educational development, and career development) which remain the same throughout the model, while the competencies are developmental at each grade level. Following a discussion of the roles of the counselor, the school staff, parents, the community, and administrators, the career guidance program is presented for grades kindergarten-3, 4-5, 6-9, and 10-12. For each grade division, an overview describing characteristics and needs of students regarding career development is provided; career guidance objectives are stated; competency-based planned activites involving counselors, teachers and other staff, parents, community, and administrators are given; and resources necessary for the planned activities are included.
