This guide is intended to assist in the development of competency-based programs for the professional development of vocational education supervisors working at the state level.

It includes a description of training strategies in use, essential elements of successful training programs, and principles of the professional development of state supervisors. Part Two lists recommended print and mediated resources for use in professional development programs for state-level vocational education supervisors. Both general and task-specific resources are listed. Details of the procedures involved in the Developing a Curriculum (DACUM) analysis and general conclusions drawn from the verification study of the administrator competencies identified in the national study are outlined in Part Three. Appendixes to the guide list the mean scores for each task included on the survey instrument and a summary of the general information portion of the survey.
