The Vocational Teacher Education Project (VTEP) was a 4-year project designed to create a dynamic vocational teacher education model for use in vocational teacher education programs throughout Florida. The knowledge base requirements for effective teaching and Florida's vocational teaching education delivery models were reviewed. A VTEP model was then developed based on input from the following sources: project advisory committee members, local and state school district vocational education leaders; and reviews of literature and pertinent research reports. The VTEP model developed is a holistic model for planning vocational teacher education that employs partnerships and collaborative working relationships to equip vocational teacher education students with necessary how-to-teach competencies and link vocational teacher education with local vocational education programs.
