A Coordinated and Comprehensive School-Based Career Placement Model: Volume III of a Research Project to Develop a Coordinated Comprehensive Placement System.
Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Center for Studies in Vocational and Technical Education.
Volume 3 presents a descriptive outline of the Wisconsin school-based career placement model. The two major objectives for the model are: (1) to maximize the individual student's competencies for independent career functioning and (2) to maximize the availability of career placement options. For orderly transition, each student must receive the services to: formulate a unique career identity, develop appropriate career planning strategies, prepare for entry into a cluster of occupational options, utilize alternative educational/occupational/community resources for career planning, and re-evaluate and/or change career pathways. Implementation procedures are outlined as: (1) identifying the potential users, (2) specifying behavioral competencies for career placements, (3) assessing students for competencies and needs, (4) surveying the community and school for existing resources, (5) establishing priorities, (6) determining the services and personnel to meet the sub-objectives, (7) assigning responsibilities for specific programs, (8) evaluating sub-objectives and implementing revisions, (9) evaluating overall program through follow-up, and (10) evaluating the program in relation to major school goals. Various techniques helpful in implementing the procedures also are suggested. Appendixes contain supplementary information and a listing of materials and resources for placement program development.
