Vocational Education and the Delivery of Manpower Services: A Human Resource Management Course Monograph. No. 3.
Pautler, Albert J., Jr.
A graduate-level course was developed to acquaint vocational educators and human resources development specialists with items of mutual concern in a seminar-like educational experience. The course attracted both educators and manpower personnel, such as those administering CETA (Comprehensive Employment and Training Act) programs. Topics addressed in the course included (1) articulation between vocational education and CETA; (2) relevant legislation; (3) structure and resources for the delivery of manpower services; (4) vocational education in New York state; (5) determining local manpower needs; (6) manpower and vocational policy; and (7) development of an articulation model. Instructional strategy included guest speakers, visits to agencies, group discussion, individual research, and small group research projects in which vocational educators and CETA personnel were forced to work together to address areas of mutual concern. It is noteworthy that a mixture of degree-seeking students and practitioners together in a course presents some problems, none of which is insurmountable. (Relevant curriculum materials are appended, and the main areas covered are described in five class modules.) (CP)
