Pilot Program for Training Placement Personnel. Final Report.
Ramp, Wayne S.; And Others
Fifteen placement project participants were enrolled in a refined competency-based continuation of a pilot program to train individuals to function as placement coordinators in their schools. They were enrolled in a weekly oncampus placement seminar at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale for the entire academic year (1979-80) and in a continuous, supervised internship in their respective schools that required them to operate a placement service. Summer internship experiences were provided by agencies outside the local school system. An evaluation instrument was used by participants to rate each week's seminar, and participants evaluated the entire project on the Department of Adult, Vocational, and Technical Education Workshop Evaluation Participant's Form. Project staff and local education agency internship supervisors conducted a continuous review of the program's effectiveness. (Conclusions are presented at the end of the report. Appendixes include the Placement Coordinator Training Transportable Model, sample log of daily internship activity, supervisor evaluation form, and Workshop Evaluation Participant's Form. (YLB)
