This paper presents a historical overview of the field of bilingual education and vocational education. The extent of the need for bilingual vocational education is described along with the status of current programming. The description of the state of the art includes program design, assessment practices, instructional materials, personnel, and strategies in bilingual vocational instructor training. Exemplary bilingual vocational education programs are reviewed, including those on the federal, state, and local levels, and vocational English-as-a-second-language programs are described. Finally, recommendations are made relative to program development and expansion. Appendixes to the paper list selected sources of bilingual and non-English vocational materials and selected resources in bilingual vocational training. (KC)
