Development of a Pilot Program for Career Information, Recruitment, Counseling, and Placement Services for Potential Vocational Office Education and Distributive Education, Home Economics and Industrial Arts Teachers. Final Report, July 1, 1979 to June 30, 1980.
One of the major problems facing vocational education today is the lack of qualified and competent teachers to fill vacancies created by expansion in the vocational education programs. This pilot project conducted at Emporia State University (Kansas) was constructed to develop a comprehensive model to recruit, counsel, and place vocational business occupations teachers, industrial education teachers, home economics teachers and coordinators in the schools of Kansas. In the project, the guidance and career services (of several state agencies) currently being used in public education were to be adapted to the university level. The project designed a model for long-term cooperative arrangement between the information, recruitment, counseling, and placement services in vocational teacher education. The procedure used was visitations to vocational and teacher education programs at other institutions which had been identified as integrating the guidance services into teacher education activities. Secondarily was the development of the demonstration model for providing an integrated system for teacher career information, recruitment, counseling, and placement services for potential teachers. Plans for installation and initiation of the service system in the university were completed. This involved input from staff, advisory committee, and resource personnel. The system was to be installed at Emporia State University and initiated for a year-long trial period during the 1980-81 school year. (KC)
