Community College Comprehensive Career Development Model.
Central Piedmont Community Coll., Charlotte, NC.
This document provides information on the following components of Central Piedmont Community College's comprehensive career development model: (1) project mission (universal opportunity for career development) and vision statement; (2) recommendations of the Committee for Planning Comprehensive Career Development; (3) competencies; (4) an outline of the planning process; and (5) the model. Recommendations relate to three components of the model: student services, instruction, and community linkage; assessment is the fourth component. Student services to be provided include a comprehensive career center, job placement center, and more interviewing on campus. Instructional recommendations include offering introductory courses for career development, infusing competencies in the curriculum, integrating with advisement, and emphasizing articulation programs. An advisory committee, evening programs, and outreach program for closing businesses are examples of community linkage activities. Adult competencies are arranged in three categories based on the National Career Development Guidelines: self-knowledge indicators, educational and occupational exploration indicators, and career planning indicators. Five appendices form the bulk of the document: preplanning; initiation and education; exploration and needs assessment; developing a model; and implementation. In the appendices, material and examples of the work done in each step of the planning process are provided; agendas, surveys, activities used in the focus groups and planning retreats are included.
