Comprehensive Career Guidance. Postsecondary & Adult. Programs and Model.
Moore, Earl J.; Miller, Thomas B.
Divided into four parts, this document describes a comprehensive career guidance model for postsecondary and adult programs. In part 1, the rationale for extending career guidance and counseling into the lifelong learning perspective is explained, the Georgia Life Career Development Model is described, and the components of a process model for comprehensive career guidance are presented. Part 2 reviews adult career guidance programs in the following settings: adult correctional institutions; agencies; business and industry; and regional- and community-based brokerages. Part 3 reviews career guidance programs in postsecondary institutions. Finally, part 4 presents a comprehensive career guidance program model for adults based on the following propositions: (1) a life career development framework; (2) utilization of a process model; (3) program functions of personnel which can be identified and related to life career development objectives and process responsibilities; (4) postsecondary and adult linkage; (5) an action plan with a cybernetic-systems approach and (6) identification/development of processes and systems that are uniquely beneficial to adult populations. Needs assessment instruments and an inventory of program functions and factors are appended. Related documents (CE 019 693, CE 019 696, and CE 019 699) contain administration manuals for adult and postsecondary career guidance assessment instruments. (BM)
