Unemployment of those aged 16 to 23 is due largely to inadequate job preparation. Most educators have little exposure to the world of work outside of education, and may unknowingly provide incorrect, restrictive or out-of-date information to students. This Educators-in-Industry Handbook is designed to provide G.E. plant representatives with guidelines to develop and implement local programs to provide educators--especially guidance counselors--with first-hand industrial experiences. The Handbook should be utilized as a source from which a local program might be adapted to meet the needs and constraints peculiar to a particular location. It discusses the background of, and need for, local programs developed and implemented at G.E. facilities. It provides guidelines to initiate, conduct and follow-up a program. It also provides examples of application and evaluation forms, program schedules, and budget items useful in designing and administering a local program. (Author/HMV)
