Career Education: Implications for Guidance and Counseling.
Worthington, Robert M.
Career education is gaining acceptance as a way of making education more relevant and more human. There are five levels to the approach: Grades K-6 deals with career awareness; 7-9 provides occupational information and career exploration; 10-14 is concerned with job placement and specialized career education; the post-secondary level involves specific occupational preparation; and adult and continuing education covers the total spectrum. Since career education is an evolving concept, the levels are not distinct. The four models of career education (school-based, employer-based, home-based, and rural-residential) have implications for the role of counselor and the scope of responsibility of occupational guidance. The existence of varying opinions among nationally influential groups and individuals concerning career guidance, counseling, and placement emphasizes the need for specifying objectives appropriate to a comprehensive and integrated developmental program in these areas. These might include identification of career development needs of students at all levels, programs for all levels, coordinated activities, placement programs, outreach functions, and job adjustment counseling.
