This manual is a list of verified vocational education activities that relate to job development, job placement, and job follow-up/follow-through services. The activities incorporate information on employability skill development, occupations and labor market, job search training needed for the disadvantaged, student needs assessment, and student development. The manual includes three chapters in addition to the introduction. The introduction provides an overview of the manual and a synopsis of legislation related to the disadvantaged. Chapter 2 contains the suggested approaches for vocational educators and others working with the disadvantaged. Descriptions of each activity include nine subject headings: Activity, Objective, Procedure, How Activity Conducted, Information Source, Personnel, Expected Outcome, Concerns of Conducting Activity, and Solutions. Chapter 3, Recommendations, offers additional suggestions for improving general job development, job placement, and job follow-up/follow-through services in vocational education. The chapter is divided into four major sections: social, political, legal, and economic recommendations. The final chapter contains an annotated list of further readings. (LRA)
