Supporting TVEI. FE and the Development of Technical and Vocational Curricula.
Further Education Unit, London (England).; School Curriculum Development Committee, London (England).
This publication is primarily intended to persuade Further Education (FE) colleges in Great Britain to support and become involved in Technical and Vocational Education Initiative (TVEI) schemes. (Formulated in 1982, TVEI represents a major proposal to shift the curricular emphasis for the 14-18 age group toward a more work-oriented philosophy.) The introduction to the guide traces the development and outlines the major objectives and components of TVEI. The remaining chapters of the main body of the guide deal with the following topics: plans for a 4-year framework; the nature of the curriculum; guidance, counseling, and assessment; accreditation; special learning needs; evaluation and review; and staff development. The first three appendixes outline TVEI aims and criteria, curricular examples, and program offerings as they compare to other options available for 14- to 18-year-olds. The fourth appendix includes case studies highlighting the following topics: student perceptions of TVEI; TVEI across the ability range; guidance, counseling, and assessment; ways of bringing institutions together; community validation in TVEI; interagency cooperation; and TVEI staff development. The remaining three appendixes include a bibliography, glossary of abbreviations, and list of study group members. (MN)
