Industrial Education Transfer Programs; Handbook for Counselors and Guide for the Transfer Student.
Western Michigan Univ., Kalamazoo. Dept. of Industrial Education.
Developed through a research grant by educators from Western Michigan University, this package was designed for community and junior college counselors and technical personnel. The material is to serve as an aid in providing a more efficient transfer program for industrial education students. Much of the information is a result of comments made by a representative group of counselors and deans at a work-study conference and is general in nature so that it can apply to any area of the country. Data are provided about the current and projected job market, job requirements, and educational needs for persons in industrial education in the three areas of industrial arts, technical education, and vocational education. The handbook is in question and answer format with figures and tables included for illustration of data. A list of degree-granting institutions, and an abbreviated version of the Occupational Outlook Handbook 1970-71 are appended. A sample booklet, representative of handbooks produced by several senior institutions is included, and contains information for the student relative to the transfer process. (GEB)
