A Summary of the Types of "Paraprofessional Training" Provided by Junior and Senior Colleges and Universities in the Areas of Health, Education, and Welfare during Academic Year 1970-1971.
Alexander, Aaron C.
The Office of New Careers (ONC) was established in July 1969, to help program agencies realize the full potential of the new careers concept as a service-delivery vehicle. However, without knowledge of the current, general status of the New Careers basic component, the Office could do little to begin its leadership role. Therefore, the element of training was selected as the initial point-of-emphasis on which to concentrate the search for information. The summary presented in this report is a compilation of responses received from every U.S. state and territory. It should serve to inform interested persons of the nature of the training being provided by institutions of higher education, and as a springboard for other inquiries into the new careers component-processes. Arranged in table format with interpretative narrative, the report presents information on such topics as the types and numbers of institutions offering training, and listings of titles of training offered by various institutions.
