Job Preparation: A Curriculum Manual for Students with Mild, Moderate or Severe Handicaps. Secondary Transition and Employment Project: STEP.
Baumgart, Diane; And Others
The Job Preparation curriculum guide, developed by the Secondary Transition and Employment Project (STEP) in Idaho, is designed to provide students with mild, moderate, or severe handicaps in grades 10, 11, or 12 with hands-on training for a specific job chosen by the student and parents in previous career and work exploration activities. Completion of the Job Preparation phase culminates in placement in an on-going job and establishment of eligibility for adult support services. Goal 1 establishes a transition plan for the student. Goal 2 requires that the student apply job-seeking skills learned as part of Career Focus to obtain a job placement. Goal 2B provides for placing a student on a job training site consistent with his or her interests and abilities if the student cannot obtain a job independently. Goal 3 establishes procedures for determining training needs. Goal 4 aims to teach job skills and work-related social and academic skills, and involves adult service providers in the job training process. Goal 5 establishes a system for monitoring the student's progress on the job and Goal 6 involves evaluating the Job Preparation program through interviews with employers and students. A description and a listing of responsible persons, materials/forms, products/outcome, and suggested start/completion date are provided for each suggested activity. Appendixes provide forms used in implementing each goal. (DB)
