Planning Model for Vocational Education.
Young (Arthur) and Co., Portland, OR.
Providing state agencies involved in vocational education with a clear picture of their responsibilities, this document presents guidelines for developing vocational education state plans. The first section reviews basic planning concepts and terminology. The focus of this review is on delineation of the policy (strategic) planning and operation planning processes and the functions associated with each. Section 2 presents a definition of the Commission for Vocational Education mission as well as the logic supporting that definition. In general, the mission is shown to relate almost exclusively to the policy planning portion of the process; the operational planning portion of the process is recognized as the purview of the individual agencies. Following the mission statement is a compilation of some of the fundamentals that are important to the success of the planning process. The remaining material details the procedures, tasks, and calendar which are needed to actually accomplish policy planning. This work plan is intended to serve two purposes: (1) it specifies products to be generated and general methodologies on how they could be developed; and (2) it provides benchmarks for measuring progress in the planning process.
