Legislative Provisions for the Improvement of Guidance Programs and Personnel Development. Final Report, Volume I.
Drier, Harry N.
This report discusses a project to facilitate and enhance fulfillment of legislated authorities and requirements for meeting career guidance program needs. Chapter 1 lists its four aims: analyze pertinent federal and state legislative provisions, identify competencies needed by guidance personnel to effectively conduct a comprehensive career guidance program, develop competency-based training materials, and train guidance personnel in use of materials. Chapter 2 presents procedures used, by the twelve major and two administrative objectives: (1) identify and characterize legislation; (2) identify competencies required of personnel; (3) identify, select, and describe existing career guidance program material resources; (4) develop and disseminate general audience project brochure; (5) develop project training materials; (6) identify support materials; (7) pilot test training and support materials; (8) conduct national training workshop; (9) conduct four regional training workshops; (10) conduct state-level training workshop; (11) conduct national dissemination workshop; (12) evaluate project effectiveness; (13) utilize national advisors and consultants; and (14) prepare reports. Evaluation of regional workshops and state-level workshops is summarized in chapter 3. Chapter 4 discusses conclusions within the context of each separate objective. Recommendations made in chapter 5 are clustered into six categories: pre- and inservice for guidance personnel, certification, testing of competency materials in varied settings, future use of trained trainers, and materials dissemination.
