Guide to Secondary INFOE for Counselors and Students.
Cameron, Walter A., Comp.
Secondary INFOE (Information Needed for Occupational Entry) is a service which enables counselors to provide localized career and educational infomation to students. The key to the INFOE service is the INFOEscript, a career brief developed for student use in the form of a microfilm aperture card. Each brief describes a specific job title. An alphabetical list of job titles for which there are briefs comprise the Career Deck. A Program Offering Deck provides information on vocational and technology programs offered in Tennessee; the Institution Deck informs students of postsecondary institutions in Tennessee and surrounding States. The development of the materials, directions for use of the cards, and their implementation are discussed. The INFOE pilot study and its evaluation are described. A brief description of the K-14 INFOE program is included. The supplementary materials for the counselor contain an alphabetical and numerical listing of the job titles in the Career Deck and a matrix of programs offered in the State area vocational schools, State community colleges, and State teacher institutes. For the students, a sample job title INFOEscript, directions for using the INFOE Career Deck, and information on the Program Offering Deck and on the postsecondary Institution Deck are presented.
