Articulation and Cooperation among Vocational Education, Technical Education, Adult Education, JTPA Programs in South Carolina. A Report.
South Carolina State Council on Vocational and Technical Education, Columbia.
Pursuant to the requirements of South Carolina's Employment Revitalization Act of 1986 (ERA-86), the State Occupational Training Advisory Committee (SOTAC) in South Carolina requested information for 1987-88 and 1988-89 to assess the effectiveness of coordination and articulation efforts among education and training entities. Replies with substantiating information were received from the Office of the State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education, Offices of Vocational Education and Adult Education in the State Department of Education, and Employment and Training Division, Office of the Governor (Administration for the Job Training Partnership Act). Generally, there was a satisfactory degree of coordination and cooperation between and among occupational education programs. Progress was still being made in achieving articulation between secondary vocational education programs and related postsecondary technical college programs. The extent of coordination appeared to be difficult to measure; articulation can be more specifically documented than can coordination or cooperation. Information and/or data provided by state agencies pursuant to Section 13 of the Employment Revitalization Act of 1986 did not follow any consistent style or format; therefore, it was difficult to make comparisons or draw conclusions. All data were totaled or summarized to statewide statistics, and conclusions could not be drawn on an area or regional basis. It was recommended that data on coordination, cooperation, and articulation should be retained and made available on an area basis and that all categories or offices primarily affected by ERA-86 should comply with all annual reporting requirements of Section 13 of that act.
