Enhancing Placement. Sex Equity Training Package. Unlocking Nontraditional Careers. Research and Development Series No. 215B.
Sechler, Judith A.
This training package provides materials to build collaborative relationships and commitment between vocational educators and employers in order to enhance placement of women and men in occupations nontraditional to their sex. The three units of the training package are intended for use beyond the initial stage of raising awareness of the need for sex equity. Unit 1 is designed to update the participants' awareness of the current status and motivation of nontraditional students and workers. Unit 2 focuses on breaking down myths and stereotypes by sharing success stories about nontraditional workers and students. The final unit provides training to achieve skills for positive interactions with nontraditionals, to solve potential problems encountered by nontraditionals, and to develop mutual action plans for collaborative placement strategies. Each unit contains objectives, a daily outline, and learning activities. Materials are designed to provide 4 1/2 to 6 1/2 hours of instruction. The package also includes 15 handouts, 13 tape scripts (3 tape cassettes are available), 40 transparency masters, and 1 set of role-playing cards. (KC)
