Employing Retired Military Personnel as Vocational Education Teachers.
Chase, Shirley A.; Tennant, John E.
A project was undertaken to facilitate the employment of retired military personnel as vocational education teachers. The specific objectives of the project were as follows: update the issues, barriers, and incentives involved in employing retired military personnel to fill teaching positions in civilian vocational education, develop a model for providing military personnel with counseling related to vocational education teaching as a second career, and provide recommendations for increasing the employment of retired military personnel in civilian vocational teaching positions. Data from communication with the military and vocational communities were assimilated into a brochure and an information profile that will be developed into camera-ready form for distribution to military personnel who have already decided to retire and who are in need of counseling about the steps they must take to become vocational education teachers. In addition, recommendations concerning ways of increasing the vocational education community's awareness of military retirees as a potential source of teachers and specific recruitment strategies were formulated. (Appendixes to this report include response letters from the military services, a list of organizations contacted and response letters, a list of technical panel members, and the agenda for the technical panel meeting.)
