Job Readiness Posture Scales: A New Tool to Aid in Transition from Enrollee to Worker Status.
Benson, Stephen D.; Whittington, Marna C.
Successful transition from trainee status to worker status has been shown to be dependent on three factors: adequate skill training, adequate placement opportunities, and appropriate Job Readiness Posture (JRP). The Vocational Opinion Index Transition System (VOITS) was designed to help trainees develop appropriate Job Readiness Posture during skills training. The Transition System uses the VOI to diagnose an individual's JRP areas of concern and to prescribe and implement remedial activities. VOITS was implemented on a pilot basis at four MDT Centers. Results of the pilot implementation indicate the positive impact of the VOITS on center operation and staff effectiveness. (Author)
