Guide to Vocational-Technical Education Program Alternatives: Secondary and Postsecondary. An Introduction. Competency-Based Vocational Education Administrator Module Series.
Harrington, Lois G.; And Others
Intended as a supplement to the Competency-Based Vocational Education Administrator Module Series, this guide overviews the typical vocational programs available and the general kinds of requirements involved that would have implications for program planning and budgeting. Part 1 of three parts defines what is meant by vocational education. The goals, principles, and organization of vocational education are discussed. Part 2 describes six types of alternative programs: integrated occupational experience (cooperative education, capstone experiences, on-the-job training, apprenticeships, clinical experiences, internships, shadowing); supplemental/remedial programs, including topics, structures, and implications for programs and services; special needs programs and services; competency-based education (CBE), including essential elements and desirable characteristics, differences between CBE and conventional programs, advantages, and implications for program planning; vocational student organizations; and adult/continuing education programs, including program subjects, delivery methods, marketing, and personnel. A sample checklist provides a general overview of the steps and criteria related to the development of local program plans. Part 3 suggests an optional activity--a visit to one or more program alternatives. An observation form is provided. (YLB)
