The Role of Counseling and Guidance in a Comprehensive Career Education Delivery System: An Exploratory Study.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
This three-part exploratory study involves the following interrelated facets of evolvement and implementation of career education counseling and guidance: (1) current practices and analysis of implications for career education guidance and counseling; (2) sources of manpower projections; and (3) involvement of professional associations in development of career education counseling and guidance. To identify current practices and relate them to concepts and designs of career education, the study interviewed 238 counselors, teachers, and administrators from all school levels as well as public social agencies. A survey of 126 industries to assess the availability and comprehensiveness of manpower projections disclosed the inadequacy of information for educational planners, counselors, and individuals making career decisions. Recognizing that the involvement and support of professional organizations and their membership is essential in the development, implementation and assessment of effective career education counseling and guidance practices, the third part of the study explored two approaches for gaining their involvement.
