The Northwest Suburban Career Cooperative (Illinois) developed tech prep curricula for drafting/computer-aided design and electronics training program areas. Task forces selected for the two program areas identified the type of curriculum that should be provided to train future employees and the competencies needed by students successfully completing the specific programs to enter employment. Course flowcharts for the two programs were developed. Industry partners on the task forces indicated a willingness to provide internships annually for students who successfully performed the required competencies for the two tech prep program areas. Other activities were development of a marketing plan; determination of equipment, facility, staffing, and scheduling needs of each tech prep program area; identification of tech prep coordinators and their job descriptions; inservice training; assessment of students applying for the programs; and development of curriculum objectives, outcomes, course outlines, and test assessment items for all courses to be implemented initially. (Appendixes, which make up the bulk of the report, include a list of task force members; program proposals with program brief, justification of need, program description, equipment, facilities, scheduling and transportation, staffing recommendations, support services, and qualifying courses; program sequences; marketing plan; coordinator job description; brochures; student application form; advisory committee members; and public relations materials.)
