Work Education: What Is It and How Do I Get Involved? (Information for the Prospective Employers).
Pima County Developmental Career Guidance Project, Tucson, AZ.
Information for prospective employers of students involved in a work education program sponsored by the Pima County Developmental Career Guidance Project is presented in the document. Two of the project's programs are described: (1) Work Exposure, aimed at providing seventh through twelfth grade students with an opportunity to observe on a job site for approximately 10 hours, with some participation, no pay or credit, and classroom followup and (2) Work Experience, aimed at providing tenth through twelfth grade students with an opportunity to spend approximately eight hours per week for about three-quarters of a school year on the job, with pay and credit possibilities. Child labor laws for the State of Arizona, job limitations, student I.D. cards, and insurance are discussed. Participating schools will provide a pretraining program, determining the student's interests and abilities. The project center will locate job sites, schedule interviews, and conduct pre- and postevaluations. A school sponsor will regularly visit the work site. Work Experience programs will require employer and student evaluations. Sponsor and evaluation forms and an employer expectations list are included. (LH)
