Linking the Worker to Postsecondary Education: A Manual for Training Study Organizers in America.
Schmelter, Harvey B.
A manual outlining a training program for study organizers who are either advising workers already pursuing further education or seeking to reach those workers not yet aware of career and educational opportunities is presented. The guide is designed to aid institutions looking for new ways to involve their workers in educational opportunities and to meet the lifelong learning needs of the work force. Worker refers to industrial workers, building-trades workers, and service and professional workers. Study organizers provide outreach services and meet with workers to inform them about available career and educational programs, help them complete admissions and tuition refund applications, and assist them in solving personal, family, work, or financial problems relating to their career and educational plans. Information is presented on selecting the trainer and support workers, selecting the study organizers, and setting up a training program. Eleven training objectives are detailed in terms of learner outcomes, number of sessions, teaching methods, activities, suggestions for the trainer, and references. The curriculum guide should be reviewed by the trainer and the labor education advisory committee and adapted to meet local conditions. (SW)
