A Policy Information System for Vocational Education.
Hamlin, Roger E.; And Others
One of 10 publications from a long-range vocational education planning project, this report presents a simplified eight-step method for long-range planning in vocational education. The planning model is presented in two major components: A procedures summary containing the eight steps used in the program planning process, and one or more alternative methods for making the projections called for in the summary. Methods for making the projections are presented in two parts. Part I is comprised of steps 1-4 which assess total enrollment projections, student interest, labor market demand, and program enrollment projections. Steps 5-8 comprise part II and take the sets of program projections developed in part I and use them to estimate instructional staff needs, instructional staff costs, capital outlay, and consumable costs associated with each program. A planning year form for combining the results of all the steps on one sheet is included and a flow diagram of the procedures for planning is shown. (This report is designed for use in conjunction with another publication developed by the same team of authors entitled "Planning for Vocational Education.") (BL)
