A Feasibility Study to Investigate the Structure and Operation of a Model Occupational Information Dissemination Unit Which Would Operate Between the New York State Employment Service and the New York State Education Department.
Dubato, George S.
The possibility was explored of greater cooperation between the New York State Employment Service and the secondary schools and 2-year colleges of New York in the production and dissemination of improved occupational information for students and counselors. To compile data on present practices and opinions of counselors and administrators, responses were obtained from 740 elementary and high school counselors, 52 2-year college counselors, 44 high school administrators, and 26 administrators in 2-year colleges. The responses indicated that counselors felt less well prepared in occupational information than in other aspects of their work, and that both counselors and administrators valued highly the kinds of information which the Employment Service could supply. As a result of this study, a pilot project will be undertaken in Nassau and Suffolk Counties in 1967-68. A list of 212 local occupations has been prepared with the help of Employment Service occupational analysis. Guides on these occupations will be prepared and distributed to secondary schools and 2-year colleges as a part of the pilot project. A summary report is available as VT 005 799. (CH)
