The Community Vocational Transition Center.
Botterbusch, Karl F.; Smith, Christopher A.
This monograph outlines a model procedure for developing and running a community vocational transition center that would assist workers in making various planned and unplanned vocational transitions throughout their lives by offering a comprehensive array of vocational assessment and transition services. The first chapter addresses the question of whether a community vocational center can be competitively positioned. The next three chapters discuss the steps entailed in conducting a feasibility study, profiling center services, and establishing a center. Chapter 5 describes the following specific assessment services that can be offered to clients: literacy, abilities/skills, physical demands, interests, work behaviors and attitudes, vocational aptitude, psychological, and comprehensive. The sixth chapter describes the following five services related to referral and placement: occupational exploration, job/training matching, job-seeking skills, vocational and educational counseling, and living skills assessment. Some possible service combinations are explored in chapter 7. Chapter 8 is devoted to the service process, and chapter 9 deals with program evaluation. A 10-page reference list is followed by appendixes including an initial interview form and addresses of developers of tests, assessments, and work samples. (MN)
