Vocational Counseling: A Plan for the Development of a Vocational Guidance Program.
Training Research and Development Station, Prince Albert (Saskatchewan).
The study examines the preparation by high school students for employment and the concept that this situation can be improved through a high school career guidance program. It proposes a program to help students acquire information about the world of work, skills required to make decisions about training and career choice, skills required to find and keep employment, and attitudes toward training and careers which reflect the contingencies of the socioeconomic environment. The basic components of the career guidance course are (1) developing a positive self-concept, (2) knowledge of the world of work, (3) skills of decision making, and (4) transition from school to employment. The course outlined is designed to include a high degree of teacher direction during the early part with increasing student direction and independence of action during the latter part. (MS)
