Review and Synthesis of Research on Preparation of Leadership Personnel for Vocational and Tehcnical Education.
Miller, Melvin D.
In view of the continued growth of vocational education, vocational educators have recognized the importance of leadership and have initiated educational programs to insure that competent professional personnel will be available in the future. This review and synthesis paper identifies and examines such developmental efforts and analyzes the leadership role at national, state, and local levels with special emphasis on the lack of clear role definition at the local level. Major sections of the document include: (1) Vocational Education Leadership, (2) Educational Leadership and Vocational Education, (3) Leadership Development Programs, (4) Recruitment and Selection For Leadership Development Programs, and (5) Summary and Conclusions. Among the recommendations are: (1) Terms describing functions related to leadership roles in vocational education at all levels need to be standardized, (2) Leadership development, instructional activities and procedures should be competency-based and not course oriented, and (3) More precise selection tools including the use of already existing tests and procedures should be adapted and/or standardized to use in the selection of candidates for leadership development programs in vocational education.
