This document presents the final report on the Education for Career Development program, a 3-year project developed by the Appalachia Educational Laboratory and Virginia Tech. A project overview describes how the program used counselor education/teacher education/administrator education as a preservice approach for developing attitudes, knowledge, and skills in counselors, teachers, and administrators. It notes that the training focused on maximizing school personnel's career guidance efforts on behalf of the secondary school students they would serve, and that the overriding goal of the project was to refocus preservice education programs upon developing a coordinated role for the delivery of career guidance information and services to students. The project is described as focusing on developing a model career development center; experiences and materials to be included in teacher, counselor, and administrator courses; and collaborative activities to enhance understanding and working relationships among the three groups. It is concluded that these project goals were accomplished during a 3-year period with an end product of project information available for dissemination to other institutions. A section on project development chronicles activities which took place in each of the 3 years of the project. A list of advisory committee members, sample letters to publishers and a project overview, a list of competencies, and the script for a slide/tape presentation and related project materials are appended.
