Business-Industry-Labor Linkages: A Handbook for Improving Personnel Development Programs. Handbook Section 8. Program Support: Securing Program Support for Business, Industry, and Labor Involvement.
Dieffenderfer, Richard A.; And Others
One of eight sections of a handbook for use by vocational teacher educators in improving vocational teacher education linkage with business, industry, and labor, this eighth section focuses on the program support approach to utilizing the private sector. (Program support, as defined here, encompasses monetary assistances, donation of time and services, and donation of teaching aids, materials, and equipment.) An introduction outlines the whole handbook and lists behavioral objectives for this section. Basic activities common to most program support approaches are described as a model approach. Suggested alternative forms and procedures are then presented to aid departments in developing plans that are unique to their own situation. A chapter on administrative details deals with the investigation and establishment of policies and procedures and contains a checklist of planning steps. Worksheets are provided to focus attention on gathering information, organizing details, and defining department objectives that are critical to involving business, industry, and labor in program support. (This handbook and the related ones are considered easily adaptable for use by vocational educators at postsecondary and secondary levels.) (JT)
