Career Guidance in Career Education Model IV.
Williamson, R. J.
The paper gives a brief overview of the National Institute of Education's Fourth Model for Career Education, a residential model operated by a non-profit corporation for rural disadvantaged families. The model consists of three operational units: Career Guidance-Youth, Career Guidance-Adult, and Work Experience Education. The Youth element of the program, which become operational in June of 1973, is not covered in the paper. The adult program element uses a systems approach to attain its six objectives. Three courses--Awareness, Exploration, and World-of-Work have been designed and individualized guidance materials developed, so that the product outcome is an adult participant who has developed a personalized career plan. The work experience education program consists of three units in Career Exploration, Skill Validation, and Cooperative Preparation. A major effort of the program is its measuring and verifying that the participant practices those personal attitudes essential for employment and advance. (Author/SES)
