Adult Basic Education: Employment Preparation Curriculum Guide.
British Columbia Dept. of Education, Victoria. Post-Secondary Dept.
This curriculum guide was developed in British Columbia for four purposes: (1) to define a contemporary perspective on employment preparation education; (2) to present an array of learning topics, with sample tasks and resources for instruction; (3) to present a flexible structure for course design; and (4) to provide administrators, coordinators, and instructors with a framework and terminology that will enable them to coordinate and articulate courses and to define curriculum development needs. The curriculum focuses solely on personal problem-solving and employment preparation skills. The curriculum guide is organized in six parts. The first part explains the purpose of the guide and scope of the curriculum, while the second part focuses on curriculum design. Parts III and IV present sample employment readiness skills units and life skills units. In the fifth unit, approaches to learning and instruction of adults are discussed. The final unit lists selected resources, including instructional resources in print and audiovisual formats, tests and inventories, periodicals, professional references, and publishers' addresses.
