Career Education in Corrections: A National Program of Training and Model Design.
Ryan, T. A.
The program was designed to provide training in adult career education to selected individuals employed in corrections and corrections-related agencies and to develop a generalized planning model with implementing delivery systems of adult career education for correctional settings. The report describes basic training provided in four regional 10-day seminars which equipped participants with basic skills and knowledge for planning, implementing, and evaluating delivery systems of adult career education in correctional settings. Advanced training provided in a national five-day seminar and 10-day internship for participants selected from those successfully completing the basic training program is detailed. The advanced training enabled participants to effectively implement leadership roles in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the correctional programs. The design of the planning model is discussed, including such aspects as testing by simulations and internal and external evaluations. The method of designing adult career education delivery systems, utilizing the planning model, is described. As a result of the program, 64 individuals received basic training, 17 received advanced training, a generalized planning model was developed, and 21 delivery system models for correctional agencies in 16 States and Canada were designed.
