Child Care Guidance, Management, and Service. Ohio's Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
This comprehensive and verified employer competency list was developed from a modified DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) process involving business, industry, labor, and community agency representatives from Ohio. This competency list contains seven units (with or without subunits), competencies, and competency builders that identify the occupational, academic, and employability skills needed to enter the child care guidance, management, and service field. Within the outline are three levels of items: core (required, the basis for state vocational competency tests); advancing (needed to advance in an occupation); and futuring (needed to enter and remain in a given occupation 3 to 4 years from now). The units cover the following: (1) safe, healthy learning environment; (2) physical and intellectual competence; (3) social and emotional development and positive guidance; (4) positive and productive relationships with families; (5) program responsive to participants' needs; (6) commitment to professionalism; and (7) employability skills.
