Viable Options for Improving Your Administrative Competence.
Norton, Robert E.
Because of lack of time and a dearth of specific programs, vocational education administrators have difficulty in acquiring additional education. Three major steps have been taken to remedy this situation: (1) research has been conducted to identify and verify the competencies important to vocational administrators; (2) competency-based modules have been developed to address those competencies; (3) a variety of competency-based training program strategies have been devised and implemented in several states. While none of these activities can be viewed as a panacea for all vocational educators' training needs, involvement in a competency-based administrator education program is recommended to improve the administrative competence of vocational administrators. (A list of competency-based administrator educator education modules is included in the document.) (KC)
