Provide Employability Skill Development. Module CG C-8 of Category C--Implementing. Competency-Based Career Guidance Modules.
Lankard, Bettina A.
This module, one in a series of competency-based guidance program training packages, focuses on specific professional and paraprofessional competencies of guidance personnel. Modules in Category C suggest how to conduct, accomplish, or carry out selected career guidance program activities. The purpose of this module is to help career guidance personnel acquire the knowledge and skills needed to develop and initiate a plan for helping clients to develop employability skills. It begins with a section that presents the module goal and a listing of the five competency statements. An introduction gives an overview of the purpose and content of the module. The next section presents a reading (cognitive information) on each one of the competencies. Learning experiences related to the needed competencies follow. One learning experience exists for each competency (or cluster of competencies), and each may stand on its own. Each learning experience consists of an individual activity, individual feedback, and group activity. An evaluation section contains a Pre- and Post-Participant Assessment Questionnaire and a Trainer's Assessment Questionnaire. A final section lists all references and provides annotations of related major resources. Appendixes include abstracts of selected materials on employability skills and a section on group and individual counseling techniques. (YLB)
