"You Can Too."
Experience has shown that it is possible for vocational educators and industry representatives to work together to meet the education development needs of employees in new and expanding industries. In order to remain a factor in economic/industrial development, adult vocational education must assist industry in identifying their training needs, developing training program curricula, selecting instructors, and administering the program. Based on their recent experiences in cooperating with industry to develop new training programs, members of the Mississippi Research and Development Center have developed a set of guidelines pertaining to working with industry, developing educational materials, and determining the range of services to be provided to industry. Included among these guidelines are the following: determining types of industries to receive priority; confining services to the areas of job education and job development; securing and ensuring maximum possible industry involvement; realizing ability, resource, and time limitations; using audio visual aids; modifying existing company documents to make them appropriate training materials; and selecting qualified primary and support staff.
