Competencies Needed by Personnel Engaged in Program Planning in State Divisions of Vocational-Technical Education.
Gray, Kenney Earl
The legislative requirements for state-level planning in vocational education and the changing socioeconomic problems confronting vocational education were compelling forces in the conceptualization and conduct of this study. To identify the competencies needed by personnel engaged in program planning within state divisions of vocational-technical education, three successive mail questionnaires were sent to twenty practitioners, of whom seven were chiefs of planning. As a result of this investigation a group of 147 competencies were identified as needed by planning personnel, including competencies related to socioeconomic planning, program planning, and resource planning. It was concluded that state-level planning in vocational and technical education utilizing the Arnold model involves specialized assignments requiring performance of specific planning competencies. Recommendations included more intensive study of planning competencies and additional research in planning operations. This Ph.D. dissertation was presented to the Ohio State University. (Author/JS)
