Career Ladders and Core Curriculum in Human Services. Phase II Final Report.
Soong, Robert K.
This portion of Phase II of the Social Service Aide Project, a program of exemplary education for the career development of paraprofessionals in social and/or human services, represented an attempt to broaden the career ladders developed during Phase I and to extend the core curriculum above and below the Associate in Arts degree. The scheme of the career ladders was broadened by standardizing the six levels of occupational status (Professional, Technologist I and II, Technician I and II, and Trainee) in terms of educational achievement and/or life/work competency, ultimately gauged by the worker's range of functions in dealing with people, data, and things. This information is provided in chart form, and each occupational status category is described in terms of functions with people, data, and things. In addition the core curriculum for each occupational status category was developed for secondary and postsecondary levels, and these outlines are included in the report. Phase I is available as ED 035 062 (RIE, May 1970), and related documents are available as VT 012 530-012 532 and VT 012 535 in this issue. (SB)
