A Model for Assessing Community Occupational Needs Through Inter-Governmental Data Analysis.
Tucker, Katie D.; Rowell, James R., Jr.
It is the intent of the occupational needs assessment model to provide data on present and future occupational training requirements for local communities, place the job skill needs in a priority ranking, and relate the occupational need data to the labor market and educational curriculum. This paper shows the development of this model, indicating how data sources flow into the model to relate the job market demand to training needs for the community, and specifying the data gathering activities for implementing the model. A comprehensive evaluation program with an accurate needs assessment process behind it can be an effective instrument of change within the college and within the community. (Author/AH)
