A Core Curriculum for Entry and Middle Level Workers in Human Services Agencies. Manpower for the Human Services.
Kassel, Myrna Bordelon
This monograph is the third in a series summarizing the work progress of the Human Services Manpower Career Center, a special research and development project funded by the U. S. Department of Labor. This volume offers a core curriculum for the training of workers in state human services agencies, geared primarily to the use of the community college for the training of entry and middle level human services generalists. The core curriculum is composed of three basic training components, including those which are relevant to all the human services occupations, those which are specific to the field of work, and those which are specific to the actual job the worker is expected to perform in a particular setting. A core curriculum for a 2-year community college program leading to an associate degree in human services is outlined along with recommendations for improved technology, the application of available new technology for training, and the enrichment of training faculties by the use of agency personnel and community leadership. In addition, several alternative models for the management of the state's training responsibility are offered and evaluated. Other monographs are available as VT 016 354, VT 016 357-016 359 in this issue. (SB)
