Occupational Education 1970-75; Foundation for a Master Plan.
Beck, Isabel H.
This report provides the groundwork for the development of a master plan for vocational education in the Los Angeles City Junior College District. Following a review of the problems associated with current occupational programs, a series of recommendations is presented along with directives for their implementation. Topics discussed included curriculum, vocational guidance and placement services, evaluation, continuing education for professional staffs, and budgeting. Personnel needs include planning and placement committees, a placement coordinator, instructional designers, guidance personnel, professional staffs for continuing education, and an evaluation unit. The functions, procedures, and resources, as well as a model, for each of these system components were provided. Data gathered from the district colleges and presented in tabular form included: (1) trends from 1962 regarding placement service data, advisory committee meetings, and employment market data by industry; (2) curriculum predictions for the next five years; (3) needs and student suggestions for instructional programs; (4) programs for disadvantaged and handicapped students; and (5) funding of Vocational Education Act projects, 1968-69.
