The Arkansas Vocational Education Leadership Development Extern Program was designed to prepare vocational education coordinators, directors, and other supervisory personnel for positions as leaders of vocational education within the state, specifically for the secondary grades in local school districts. An innovative, sequentially structured program involved 14 persons in: (1) a week of visitation in an area vocational school, (2) a 3-week summer workshop on a college campus, (3) a planned program of directed field experience in the extern's school, and (4) 12 weekend seminars during the 1971 academic year, held throughout Arkansas. Each extern earned 9 semester hours of credit for completion of the program. As a result of the program's success, each participant has moved into a leadership position. Funded by Public Law 90 476 and organized by a cooperative effort among local education agencies, the State Department of Education, and the University of Arkansas, the program appears to offer unlimited potential in meeting leadership development needs for vocational education. Program objectives, achievements, and implications are detailed. Extensive resource materials are appended. (AG)
