The Ohio Vocational Education Leadership Personnel Development Program.
Gorman, Carl V.
The Ohio Vocational Education Leadership Personnel Development Program is designed to prepare additional personnel needed to provide administrative and supervisory leadership services necessary to provide vocational opportunities for all. Phase 1, preservice, is an intensive workshop starting in July. This comprehensive program concerned with all facets of vocational leadership consists of large and small group presentations. It is 6 weeks in length for those preparing for supervision and 8 weeks for those preparing to become directors. Its objective is to help participants develop basic competencies and knowledge needed to function as interns in local school settings. Phase 2, internship, provides a 10-month supervised practical experience in supervision of vocational education at the operational level. Phase 3 consists of inservice seminars, 2 days in length, in November, February, and May. Activities provide opportunity for interns to share and compare experiences and to consult with authorities in each service area. Incentives for the individual are accelerated preparation for and entry into an administrative leadership position, a stipend, and 10 to 12 hours of university credit. As of June 1981, 393 persons have participated. Of the existing vocational education planning districts, 88 percent are utilizing services of personnel prepared through the program. (YLB)
