South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Office of Vocational Education.; South Carolina State Occupational Information Coordinating Committee, Columbia.
The South Carolina Comprehensive Career Guidance Program provides a framework for local districts to evolve a program that meets the specific career development needs of their district's elementary through high school students. The model provides students with the information and experience necessary to develop competencies that will help them make realistic career plans and prepare them with the career development skills necessary to enter the global workplace. The program revolves around three interrelated domains: self-knowledge, educational development, and career development. The roles of teachers and staff, administrators, counselors, community, and parents are delineated. The program follows a sequential, developmental plan of objectives, expected student outcomes, and activities to bring about these outcomes for students in K-12. The program is presented in the following format for grade segments K-3, 4-5, 6-9, and 10-12: (1) an overview describing characteristics and needs of students regarding career development; (2) career guidance objectives in each domain; (3) competency-based planned activities involving counselors, teachers, other staff, parents, community, and administrators; and (4) resources necessary for planned activities. Appendices include a middle/junior high student needs assessment, a note on planning high school curriculum, lists of occupational and nonoccupational vocational programs, and resources available from the South Carolina Occupational Information System.
