Community Career Education Center Project. Final Project Performance Report.
Cooperative Educational Services, Norwalk, CT.
A project was planned to establish two model community career education centers (CCEC) aimed at providing career development programs and counseling to adults not presently having access to such services; developing instruction programming tailored to local needs and conditions; increasing the effectiveness of such programs which already exist; and demonstrating the feasibility of expanding the CCEC concept. Learner outcome objectives are being developed so that adult learners will acquire knowledge, skills, and attitudes to make effective career decisions through systematic career development, counseling, and experience. Problems with content and delivery systems caused restructuring of learner objectives into self-contained life skills modules. Future program development will center on curriculum redesign in the areas of self-assessment and development; career awareness; career decision making; employment seeking; work effectiveness; and personal economics. A modification of the Career Skills Assessment Program--Experimental Edition, along with the curriculum redesign will make up the basis of the second year operations. (The report includes major activity descriptions; how the CCEP was established in various Connecticut communities, the incorporation of modifications, and dissemination activities. A little more than half of the document is an evaluation report of the project, outlining the learner outcome objectives, performance criteria, and group evaluations; the report concludes with a summary and recommendations.)
