Career Education Personnel Model.
Odbert, John T.; Trotter, Eugene E.
The purpose of the Career Education Personnel Model (CEPM) was to develop competency-based models for the preparation and training of education personnel (K-12) who will plan and implement career education programs at the local level. The CEPM staff identified educational personnel competencies essential to local career education programs by interviewing over 100 educational practitioners in the 18 selected local career education programs. The list of 2,025 statements obtained from the interviews and literature were combined, resulting in a list suitable for refinement and validation purposes. The final validation procedure involved a sample of 436 educational personnel (K-12). Each respondent rated each competency as to importance for an educator in his/her respective position to possess regarding the implementation and planning of a career education program at the local level. After the final competency list was determined for each of the training models, the CEPM staff interviewed over 80 practitioners (K-12) to expand each competency into a practical context. This context was designed to suggest practical ideas, especially for educational personnel in the planning stage and preliminary implementation stage of career education. There were 12 competencies validated for all nine groups, thus creating the tenth training model or comprehensive training model. The findings, which consist of validated competencies and related performance criteria, are presented in 10 individual education personnel models and are designed to serve as guidelines for inservice and preservice training programs.
