Development of a Curriculum Articulation Model between Vocational-Technical Institutes, Community Colleges, School Districts. A Regional Cooperative Research Project. Final Report.
Suver, J. Allen; And Others
A curricular articulation project was developed and conducted as a coordinated effort among ten school districts, two vocational-technical institutes, and three community colleges, comprising a regional area north and east of the city of Seattle. The purpose of the project was to test the feasibility of developing and conducting an articulation planning effort involving secondary schools, vocational-technical institutes (VTIs), and community colleges. A steering committee consisting of the vocational directors of each school district, VTI, and community college worked with the project director to develop and conduct the study. A survey of vocational course effort and current enrollments was conducted to identify and compare, on a common basis, program profiles among the three types of institutions. Based on this information, three subject areas were identified for curricular exploration and development by instructors from each of the three institutional levels. These areas were child development; business and office (secretarial, clerical); and health professions (nursing, health office support). Twenty-four instructors met in a series of workshops and developed career ladders, sample job titles, entry pay levels, and competency checklists for each step on the identified career ladders. Information was then developed which would be suitable for inclusion in advising brochures identifying institutions offering training for the various steps on the career ladders. (The career ladders and other occupational information, including that developed for the brochures, is appended.) (Author/HD)
