Consortia of El-Tip-Wa, Indiana Vocational Technical College-Region 05 Logansport, and the Industrial Community to Develop a Local Plan for PBVE in Machine Trades. Final Report.
To fill an anticipated 25 percent increase in jobs in the machine trades field in the near future, a consortia was formed, with the participants including the El-Tip-Wa Area Vocational School, Indiana Vocational Technical College Region 05, Logansport High School, and the business-community, to produce a local plan for performance-based vocational education (PBVE) in mmachine trades courses. To that end, a local catalogue of performance objectives (i.e., criterion-referenced measures associated with current occupational information relating to the job content of machinists) was established, and a competency-based local model was developed to define the machine trade job cluster. The curriculum, with specialties to match specific machinist jobs from entry level to master, was created. As a result of the project, a new state-approved curriculum was established; community relations between the various groups were cemented; and articulation of students between secondary and postsecondary institutions and between client industries and job trainees was facilitated. (The curriculum guide developed during this project is included in the document.) (KC)
