Vocational Guidance Personnel.
Banaghan, William F.
This paper addresses the need for having a specialist in vocational guidance who knows what needs to be done to implement and improve vocational guidance services. The person who fills the role of vocational guidance specialist must be aware of the potential roles that each group within the educational system can play in fostering needed guidance services, and must serve as a catalyst for bringing these resources together into a viable program. To do this, the author posits that the specialist must have an in-depth and practical understanding of the educational system, the world of work, the individual and the process of vocational development, and procedures for bringing people together in a common effort. For purposes of providing insight into the breadth and level of this person's understanding, the author provides a comprehensive description of relevant competencies. (SJL)
