The Nuts and Bolts of NTO: How To Help Women Enter Non Traditional Occupations. Second Edition.
Sanders, Jo Shuchat
This book shows the coordinator of a nontraditional occupations (NTO) program for women in a public postsecondary vocational-technical school how to run the program from planning through followup. Chapter 1 describes the benefits of an NTO program. Chapter 2 on planning and evaluation highlights groundwork to ensure that the program is needed and that support is there. It describes an evaluation method to give the information needed to strengthen the program with minimum effort. Chapter 3 tells how to build on the support and how to take advantage of existing school and community resources. Chapter 4 provides techniques for recruitment and outreach within and outside the school. Career exploration techniques and occupational counseling are the focuses of chapter 5. Chapters 6 and 7 discuss support services, the key to retention in training. They cover dealing with home and school obstacles and with opposition to career choice. Chapter 8 offers suggestions on how to make the job hunting and selection process as successful as possible by good employer contacts. It also contains guidelines on followup. Appendixes include descriptions of field test NTO programs, lists of community resources and national agency and organization resources, sample materials, a bibliography (including audiovisuals), and an index.
