Effectiveness of 4-C Manpower Training Program for Entry Participants.
O'Connell, Mary Ann; Dusewicz, Russell A.
The 4-C Manpower Training Entry Level Course at West Chester State College, Pennsylvania prepared persons with no prior experience for work as teaching aides in day care or preschool settings. The course also provided information on parent education. A total of 35 participants were enrolled in the initial 2 program years. The Entry Level Course was divided into three phases: phase I consisted of a 30-hour seminar on the concepts of child development; phase II was a practicum done in a day care or child development center setting; and phase III assisted the course participant when she returned to her daily working situation. Evaluation of the program was based on pre- and posttest data from the Knowledge of Infant Development Scale. This Scale measured basic knowledge of concepts and terminology in child development. Results showed statistically significant gains for each program year. (BRB)
