Idaho State Occupational Information Coordinating Committee, Boise.
This document presents a model for career development programs to equip Idaho adults with personal competencies to make appropriate and satisfying career choices and transitions. This model is intended for colleges of applied technology in Idaho's postsecondary vocational-technical educational system. Part I is the program model, which includes three competency domains: self-knowledge and personal development, educational and occupational exploration, and career planning and development. Specific skills within these domains are listed as competencies that are followed by indicators. Components required for delivery of a comprehensive adult career development program (instructional services, responsive services, individual planning, and program management) are listed with suggested delivery methods. Part II lists the organizational support suggested for staffing, facilities, budget, materials, and advisory committee. Part III describes steps for program implementation at the local level: establishing institutional commitment, forming a steering committee, analyzing current practices, involving organizational staff, determining specific needs, establishing local competencies, setting priorities, and planning for change. Part IV presents a system for measuring program success in terms of program operation and student/adult outcomes. Appendixes include 8 references, 21 resources, and sample tools for program development and implementation at the local level. (YLB)
