Building Business-Education Partnerships through Extended-Campus and Pre-Apprenticeship Programs.
Brewer, Rick L.
This booklet is intended to assist vocational educators in building business-education partnerships through extended campus and preapprenticeship programs. It contains suggestions for implementing preapprenticeship, extended campus (job site), and apprenticeship-type programs that can be constructed within the framework of existing vocational education classes. Sample forms and materials are also provided. The following topics are covered: primary and fringe benefits of school-business partnerships in developing/implementing extended campus/preapprenticeship programs; tips for getting started; program implementation (time factors and schedules, student roles/responsibilities, liability considerations, day-to-day operations and procedures for monitoring them, and evaluation); program aftermaths; and basic differences between apprenticeship programs and extended campus/preapprenticeship programs. Two appendixes are also included. The first contains a sample extended campus agreement, liability waiver, and job site evaluation form. The second appendix is a sample learning guide containing the following: purpose and performance objectives, learning activities, employability attitudes, evaluation, written activity sheet, and essay summary of the learning experience.
