Implementing a Career Guidance and Placement Center.
Morgan, Susie B.; Pendleton, Barbara A.
Guidelines on how placement should fit into the total school setting and in particular into career education as it becomes better established are discussed in this paper, one of a series on critical issues in vocational-technical education. The school counselor is viewed as the coordinator of the total career guidance, counseling, and placement program as well as having a major role in working directly with students. Career guidance, counseling, and placement functions are grouped into three categories: Curriculum based functions, individual facilitation functions, and on-call functions. Traditional processes and resources of career guidance, counseling and placement functions are discussed. Implementation strategies for career guidance and placement programs are outlined to provide an approach to a sequential system for program implementation, which consists of three stages: Precommitment stage, commitment stage, and implementation stage. The model-comprehensive approach to establishing a career guidance and placement center described here is specifically for the secondary school (7-12), although the concept can be modified and made applicable for either elementary or post-secondary education. Activities and community resources use are suggested, and a floor plan for a placement center is included. (TA)
