Career Advancement through Short-Term Training Project (CAST). Final Report.
The Career Advancement through Short-term Training (CAST) project offered comprehensive career guidance and counseling to those persons needing to upgrade technical skills, those needing flexible training schedules, those moving into new careers, and those needing prerequisite training. Materials and products were developed to implement a competency-based career guidance program for short-term adult education students. A career guidance counselor was employed and worked under flexible hours to meet students' scheduling needs. A public information plan promoting CAST project services and activities was developed and implemented. Approximately 186 persons requested and received services through the CAST program. (The seven-page report is followed by these appendixes: announcement of availability of career guidance services; public information materials, including flyer, brochure, and advertisements; CAST referral and follow-up forms; career assessment form; skills assessment form; and list of materials and products developed.)
