Colorado's Success Stories. A Resource Book to Career Development.
Colorado Community Coll. and Occupational Education System, Denver.
This booklet summarizes some of Colorado's successful career development projects and provides a resource for delivering comprehensive career guidance programs. The first section of the booklet outlines the role of career development in Colorado and the National Career Development Guidelines of the National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee (NOICC), which form the basis for the Colorado projects. A matrix summarizes career development competencies by content area and level from elementary school through adult. This section is followed by seven case studies of projects deploying discretionary dollars; the projects range from building communication bridges to helping women to a holistic assessment program and technology in career development. The next section focuses on adapting the national model specified by the NOICC guidelines; six programs are profiled. The final sections of the guide list a resource handbook and a videotape, provide an order form for the National Career Development Guidelines, describe 11 NOICC Career Development Initiatives, and list 23 references.
