The Integrated Occupational Program (IOP) enables students in Alberta (Canada) who have experienced difficulty in learning to develop essential concepts, skills, and attitudes in the context of one or more occupational clusters. The IOP has four levels: occupational awareness (grades 8-9), career exploration (level 16), occupational orientation (level 26), and occupational preparation (level 36). After the first two sections on the program's rationale and philosophy, the following sections are included in this guide: goals and model of the IOP occupational component; interpersonal skills and the social sphere; required and elective components; learning resources; planning; methodology; evaluation; and scope and sequence. A section on program of studies/presentation of content, outlines skills to be developed. For each skill, learning objectives, related life skills, related curriculum applications, and suggested strategies/activities are provided. Scope and sequence charts for levels 16, 26, and 36 are presented for the following occupational component courses: agribusiness (agricultural mechanics, production, and horticultural services); business and office operations; construction and fabrication; creative arts (crafts/arts and technical arts); natural resources; personal and public services (child/health care services, esthetology, fashion/fabric services, and hair care); tourism and hospitality (commercial food preparation, food services, and maintenance and hospitality services); and transportation (automotive, service station, and warehouse services).
