Employee Upgrading for a Quality Workforce.
Drier, Harry N.; And Others
This training program is a model for recruiting and training counselors to address the career development and educational planning needs of current employees. Section A is directed to the instructor who will train counselors to provide career development assistance to employees of an organization. It describes the program concept and discusses marketing certified counselors; workshop process; and use of the training materials. Section B is directed to the counselor trainees. Seven modules are grouped into three categories: program initiation and goal setting (program intake, employee assessment, employee career planning); program and service referral (employee referral and follow-up, employability skill development options); and program operation and evaluation (client and counselor program evaluation, program operation strategies). Each module leads to the acquisition of three or four competencies. The standard format for each module is as follows: an information sheet that presents the goal and an outline of the competencies thought critical to achieving this goal; overview that describes the purpose and content of the competency to be addressed; learning experiences with objective, review to demonstrate understanding of the competency, activity, and checklist; evaluation; and references. All necessary exhibits and worksheets are provided. (YLB)
