Occupational Advisory Committees: A Theoretical Model to Meet Current Societal Trends.
Scheller, Myrnabelle B.
Following a literature review of occupational advisory committee models, a model meeting twentieth-century needs and trends was developed. The design and organizational structure of the model provides for the following: a planned, accountable method of accomplishing goals and for promoting the image of vocational education; a planned, accountable method for providing a competency-based, task-oriented, skill-producing curriculum; and a coordinated total assessment and a cooperative effort between industry and vocational education from the grass-roots level of the community being served. The findings include the following: (1) the occupational advisory committee model, as discussed in the literature, is non-specific in schematic form and only partially exists at the local level; (2) the strength of the literature model is in the concept of vital role (the connecting link between the educational agency and industry); (3) methodology for the utilization of advisory committees is lacking in the research writings of vocational educators; (4) a gap exists between theory and function, and (5) the newly proposed model should meet the purpose of advisory committees, the need for a cooperative effort by all existing educational institutions, and the current societal trends better than do existing models.
