Critical Issues in Planning Vocational Education: A Series of Simulation Exercises.
Copa, George H.; And Others
These simulation materials, designed to identify factors, priorities, and information needs in planning vocational education, consist of (1) a background information section outlining the setting and format of the exercises, (2) eight exercises, each of which focuses on a selected vocational education planning problem, and (3) a set of information sheets providing population, industrial activity, employment demand, and vocational technical institute program information on city, county, and state levels. The exercises are designed for use with nine to eleven individuals as a group and consist of a set of simulated correspondence outlining the problem and a format for recording positions and supporting rationale. Problems covered in the exercises are the occupations for which vocational education provides training, where vocational education should be located geographically, the level at which vocational programs should be offered, whether public or private agencies should provide training, labor market needs, individual needs and vocational education, whether vocational education should recruit, the relationship of vocational and other education, and the relationship between program areas.
