Alternate Plans in the Event of Work Interruption: Cooperative Vocational Education in Pennsylvania. CVE Monograph No. 2.
Dixie, Theodore C.; Welch, Frederick G.
To help solve the problem of student layoffs during training, the study sought effective alternative methods and processes, as used by cooperative vocational education (CVE), to short-term layoffs or student termination from training stations. Another objective was to determine possible steps to provide reasonable continuity in the student's educational process in the event of single industry layoff, a general recession, or the student's inability to adjust to the training station. Chapter 1 provides background information, a statement of the problems, and a systems approach to CVE using an eight-step, sequential instructional plan. Chapter 2 reviews the literature related to alternative approaches and describes some alternate approaches used by other States. A concluding summary discusses recommended alternate approaches, including relocation, transfer, assignment of projects related to the student's career objectives, in-school work activities, seasonal work enrollment, and student behavior and attitude modification. Listings of resource people, project evaluation team members, and references are appended. (Author/NH)
