A New Careers Guide for Trainers of Education Auxiliaries.
Carr, Constance; And Others
Part 1, the introduction to this manual for designing and implementing training programs for the trainers of nonprofessional or paraprofessional school personnel introduces the training model for new careers in education. Part 2 presents four "Workshops for Trainers" which they can conduct for themselves as they begin to share ideas, plan training topics and techniques, and set objectives and methods of evaluating each session. Part 3, "The Role of the Trainer," describes the relationships of the trainers with the school system and communities in the district, discusses training styles, and suggests methods of self-evaluation. Part 4, "Recruitment, Selection, and Career Development," discusses qualifications, recruitment techniques, and selection criteria in relation to the descriptions of each position in the auxiliary's career ladder; sample job descriptions are included. Part 5, "New Careers Training Techniques," summarizes general principles and specific techniques found by New Careers Training Lab to be most effective with adults, particularly undereducated and/or low income adults. Part 6, "The Training Curriculum," suggests topics and techniques which can assist the trainer as he plans each preservice and inservice session in six curriculum areas: specific job tasks, system know-how, relevant attitudes, human service skills, career-oriented education, and support services. Part 7 is "Bibliography and Selected Materials." (Author/JS)
