Troike, Rudolph C.; And Others
Based on the findings of a study investigating the factors and practices that have contributed to the successful outcomes of nine existing bilingual vocational training (BVT) programs, this guide is designed to provide practical ideas and information to program administrators and others interested in initiating and improving vocational training programs for persons with limited English speaking ability. Following a discussion of the study on which the guide is based, brief descriptions are provided of the BVT programs studied. Explained next are various successful program strategies utilized in the following BVT program areas: program administration, staff development, staff recruitment, trainee recruitment, trainee selection, program orientation, bilingual vocational skills instruction, advisory committees, curriculum development, counseling, cross-cultural training, linkage activities, on-the-job practice, job development and placement, program records, and institutionalization. Various criteria for success in bilingual education are discussed. Covered next are such aspects of planning BVT programs as needs assessment, linkage activities, administrative structure, program design, scheduling, staff development, coordination, and evaluation. Included in appendixes to the guide are checklists of criteria for successful strategies in BVT programs and passages from pertinent federal legislation. (MN)
