Employer Based Career Education (EBCE).
Banathy, Bela H.; Peterson, Robert M.
The Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development is designing the employer based career education model. The model, now at the advanced design phase and soon to be pilot tested, reflects: (1) a comprehensive educational program, (2) the needs of youth, ages 13-18, (3) an educational system to be controlled by public and private employers, (4) the importance of career exploration, (5) an individualized program, (6) the need for performance-based learning objectives, and (7) an educational program that is economically feasible. Another significant aspect of the model is the integrated curriculum approach to meeting the following needs of students: (1) self-awareness, (2) self sufficiency, (3) decision-making skills, (4) social skills, (5) basic cognitive skills, (6) career skills, and (7) skills of employability.
