Investigation of the Agricultural Vocational Education Requirements of the Fraser Valley College District.
Husdon, J. T. R.; Kennedy, G. F.
This report covers a study carried out to examine and catalogue the agriculture industry in terms of size, structure, and future growth patterns in the Fraser Valley College District, and, to some extent, the rest of British Columbia; to provide methodology to facilitate the updating of this information; to examine the agricultural vocational education requirements of the district; and to prepare recommendations on the role of the college in regard to agricultural vocational education. The detailed statistics developed on the agricultural industry are tabulated, and pictorial overlays and maps are used to present overviews of this information. A method of updating and testing program requirements in agricultural vocational educational programs is outlined. recommendations include: that Fraser become the center for agricultural vocational education programs in the province; that courses be modular and primarily designed to train persons for farm labor positions; that "on the farm training" be an important part of the courses, using local farmers' facilities; that the college employ a full-time agricultural vocational education coordinator; that an advisory committee be established to provide community input; and that programs for Native Indians be part of the college's overall program.
