Who Cares? A Curriculum Policy for Caring Courses at the Initial Level.
Further Education Curriculum Review and Development Unit, London (England).
This report reviews the existing provision of caring courses in Great Britain, analyzes the curriculum of such courses, identifies curriculum overlap, and suggests an alternative one-year vocational preparation course. The seven courses examined deal with maternal and child welfare, prenursing and nursery care, personal health care, family health, and community health care. Presented in the first section are data concerning the following aspects of each course: aims, content, design, entrance requirements, course origins, terminal objectives, enrollment, basis for curriculum design, assessment, moderation, and counseling and career guidance services provided. In the next section is presented an outline for a one-year course that would provide much of the same vocational training as the seven courses under review but would also give enough career education and vocational preparation to enable students to formulate specific career plans and negotiate their own instructional programs. The final section, together with the eight appendixes, is devoted to the detailed aims, objectives, assessment, and routes of progression that should comprise such a course. (MN)
