Practical Approaches to Career Education.
Avent, Catherine
The book, intended primarily for teachers in English schools, is appropriate for American teachers as well. Its purpose is threefold: to offer some guidance to heads of secondary schools who want to improve the quality and/or quantity of career education and guidance provided by their schools; to offer some suggestions for career education teachers devising schemes of work for classes to help students in the transition from school to work and further education; and to indicate the main sources of assistance on which they can draw within and without the education system. For school heads, there are chapters on the importance, principles, and organization of career guidance. A chapter on career education in the curriculum is directed primarily at the heads of career education departments. For the careers tacing team, there are chapters on: the role of the careers service; other extramural resources; audiovisual aids; interviewing; tests and questionnaires; speakers; careers conventions and exhibitions; work visits; work experience, work appreciation, and part-time work; higher and further education; contact with parents; and career guidance in college. There are some sample questionnaires and checklists. A list of school subjects and careers related to those subjects is appended. (Author/PR)
