Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka. Guidance and Pupil Personnel Services Section.
This manual presents a planning and implementation process for counselors' use in career guidance, counseling and placement programming. The Kansas Action Model for Career Guidance, Counseling, and Placement illustrates a process for effective programming which includes Needs Identification, Plan Development, and Implenentation and Follow Through. Implementing an adequate needs assessment and setting measurable goals and objectives will result in the development of a more comprehensive and systematic career guidance, counseling, and placement program. Implementation of activities and evaluation of outcomes are essential to determine the effectiveness of the plan and for identification of future program needs. Kansas Action Model components formulate a continuous and on-going process essential to effective program initiation, implementation, and evaluation. The planning activities in the following sections are oriented toward the actual functioning of a counselor in the career guidance, counseling and placement program. All instruments, activities, and resources identified are intended to be illustrative. The framework of the Kansas Action Model actively involves the counselor in the process of defining local needs, goals, and objectives, as well as activities, procedures, and resources to meet the needs for each unique situation.
