Career Awareness and Exploration: A New Approach to Career Counselling.
Larson, Lila M.
The major purpose of the Pre-Occupational track of Manitoba's Adult Basic Education program is to enable students to get firsthand information about the world of work and to get information about themselves that will assist them in crystallizing an occupational choice. The students undergo an extensive career exploration phase including actual work situations, then are counseled on an individual basis. The student who is ready then makes a tentative occupational choice and proceeds to study job search techniques on a group basis. The student who is not ready will return to the exploration phase (Unit I) and study another career cluster. Unusual features of this program include help in locating a job once a decision is made, and assistance (mainly supportance) the first three months away from the program.
