Lewis, Charles E.; And Others
This report describes a developmental project in occupational education aimed at the unemployed, underemployed, and economically disadvantaged adults living in the 7-county northeastern North Carolina area served by The College of The Albemarle, one of 13 state community colleges. Partially funded by a foundation grant, this project included a comprehensive analysis of the Albemarle area in order to provide specific recommendations for implementing and executing new occupational education programs. Four sections of the report discuss project findings in these areas: (1) social and economic characteristics of the area and of potential vocational education students, (2) barriers to the full employment of the target population, (3) identification of clientele, and (4) recommended occupational education programs. A wide range of tables presents the data. (AG)
