Career Education Handbook for Implementation: Program Development: Placement Guide.
Michigan State Career Education Advisory Commission, Lansing.
The guide is a component of the Program Development Section of the "Career Education Handbook for Implementation" whose purpose is establishing and operating a school-based job placement program. It is designed to be of practical assistance to the user in building a placement program that will effectively meet the needs of a particular situation. The brief introduction discusses various reasons for school-based placement. The overview defines school-based placement services and describes some programs and projects operating successfully in Michigan. The third section covers staff involvement, expected competencies of placement personnel, and the activities of the placement program. The final section discusses 11 basic components necessary in operating a placement program: placement advisory committee, placement staff, ongoing in-service, program promotion, career information systems, identification of placement opportunities and student placement interests/needs, referral systems, followup and feedback, evaluation and modification, and area coordination and support. Three models are included. The first outlines the stages of planning, implementation, operation, and evaluation and modification for a school-based program. The second expands on the first to show persons responsible and activities required for each stage. The third provides a similar outline for area and local placement activities. (BP)
