Career Development for the Student in the Community College.
The concept of career education embraces the programs referred to as vocational-technical but it also encompasses all other segments of the educational program. In the concept of career education in the community college there are two themes, specialization and regeneration. The specialization theme enables an individual to refine his ability to perform a particular life role or a segment of a life role in a more proficient manner. Regeneration means renewing one's capability to perform one or more of the life roles. The community college must accommodate adults at all age levels for the life roles brought about by changes in technology and society. Examples are presented to translate the career education concept into educational activities within the community college, including diagnostic programs for recent high school graduates, credit consideration for veterans, and guidance for mature persons in new life roles. The community college is a practical delivery system for the career education concept. (MF)
