A "Career Ladder" Approach to Junior College Curriculum.
Schrupp, Harold A.
More attention should be paid to the building of career guidance and career curriculum programs with exit points that enable the student to seek employment at any time in an entry level position and/or to continue his education. Some of the best "career ladder" programs are the federally sponsored New Career programs. A number of the California junior colleges involved in this program are listed and the details of their programs discussed. The following guidelines are given for construction of a "career ladder" curriculum: (1) identify specific titles of jobs that are available; (2) apply a job analysis to the occupation; (3) organize the curriculum to reflect specific behavioral objectives; (4) develop evaluation criteria; and (5) develop the curriculum. Examples of programs with related employment possibilities are listed for: human services, municipal services, accounting, agronomy, aerospace drafting technology, agri-business, air transportation-commercial pilot, air transportation general, architectural technology, civil technology, environmental science technology, marine laboratory technician option, journalism, and industrial drafting.
