Vocational and Career Guidance. The Key to Unlock the Future. A Model for Vocational and Career Guidance for Washington County School District. Manual for Implementation for Grades One through Twelve.
Washington County School District, St. George, UT.
This document contains a model for vocational career education and career guidance for grades 1-12, based on a program developed in the Washington County School District (Utah). The model is based upon the premise that major educational and vocational goals have been identified over the years by many state departments of education and local school districts. Ten goals were identified as the basis for the eight goals of the model. The goal that is the comprehensive base of the model is developing decision-making skills that will lead to making informed career choices. Specific goals in the model are self-awareness leading to self-identity; career awareness leading to career identity; appreciation and attitudes leading to self- and social fulfillment; educational awareness leading to educational identity; economic awareness leading to economic understanding; skill awareness and competencies leading to employment skills; and employability skills leading to vocational/career placement. For each of these goals, the model contains sub-goals related to the elementary (awareness), middle school (exploration), and secondary (specialization) levels. The model also provides suggested guidance activities for each grade level, along with suggestions for implementing the model in a school system. (KC)
