This specific information is then provided for a vocational education competency-based curriculum: purpose and overview (target groups, philosophy, curriculum planning and design) and course of study. For health occupations education, grades 9-12, are offered a program description, learning outcomes, and scope and sequence. These courses are included in the curriculum: introduction to health occupations education, health occupations education I, and health occupations education II. Materials provided for each course include a topical outline and a one-page format for each competency goal that details grade level, skills/subject area, the competency goal, objective(s), and measure(s) (suggestions of ways in which students may demonstrate their ability to meet the objective).
