Management & Organization: Program Planning & Governance, Personnel, Business Management, Community Relations. Handbooks for Experience-Based Career Education.
Anderson, Nancy; And Others
This is one of a set of five handbooks compiled by the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory that describes the processes for planning and operating a total experience-based career education (EBCE) program. Processes and material are those developed by the original EBCE model--Community Experience in Career Education (CE)2. The area of operations to which this handbook is devoted is management and organization. The first of four sections concerns program planning and governance, including community involvement, surveying potential support, meeting legal and educational requirements, securing program approval, and providing an adequate base for policymaking. Section 2 focuses on personnel and suggests procedures and considerations for recruiting and selecting staff, determining salaries and benefits, establishing working conditions, orienting staff, and providing staff development. Section 3 discusses business management--budgets, financial reports, office procedures, insurance, health and safety provisions, facilities, and transportation. Section 4 (community relations) suggests strategies for introducing EBCE to the community and meeting the ongoing information needs of internal and external audiences. Each section has three basic parts: (1) preview, including definition of the EBCE element discussed, purposes and underlying assumptions of that element, and people involved in delivering it; (2) steps to follow; and (3) narrative section explaining process behind each step. Extensive appendixes contain supplementary materials; an index to all the handbooks is also provided. (YLB)
