Vocational Education Competencies Identified for Local Leaders of Occupational Education.
Ward, Darrell Lin
This study identified a list of compentencies which are essential to adequate performance by occupational education leaders, and considered methods of preparing individuals for these roles. Fifty competency items were identified through a review of literature and a study of existing leadership development programs. Incorporated into a questionnaire utilizing a Likert-type scale, these items were then ranked by 134 leaders of vocational education in Oregon and by 10 national leaders. From this, 40 competencies were identified, which should serve as an adequate base for leadership program development. At least the top ranking 20 competencies and, in all probability, the top 40 should be included in preparatory and in-service programs for occupational education leaders. The results also showed that the best method of preparing an individual for competency is a combination of academic course work and internship experience. (JS)
