The report presents a record of the first year's activities of Project MODEL (Mobile Occupational Development Education Laboratories), including indepth statements on policies, organizational structures, schedules, financial verification, and projects for the next year of operation. The document serves as a manual of policies and procedures for the project as well as a study of the successes and difficulties of the inservice program. The project was designed as an experimental program to be used to develop inhouse, ongoing programs in institutions and agencies that serve the handicapped and disadvantaged. It is an alternative delivery system for career development in terms of occupational training for the institutionalized, handicapped, and disadvantaged populations in Massachusetts. Four mobile multimedia laboratories, teacher coordinators, and aides provide students with "hands-on self-instructional learning." Instructional programs are compact, lasting from two to twelve weeks. Educational opportunities in each mobile unit are unlimited and diversified enough to meet the basic needs of most students.
