Competency Based Vocational Education Workshop Facilitators Guide.
Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Michigan Center for Career and Technical Education.
This workshop facilitator's guide is designed to inform professional staff about competency-based vocational education (CBVE) to help eligible persons on public assistance acquire competencies necessary for gainful employment in the following occupational areas: airline reservations and travel services; computer applications; dental care; emergency medical care; law enforcement and security; office support services; and electronics and robotics. Each program area is 480 hours in length--vocational instruction, 300 hours; job-specific math and reading--120 hours; and employability skills instruction, 60 hours. Each of the eight instructional modules of the Career Development Employment and Training Program (CDETP), also known as Project EDGE, is intended for use as a self-contained inservice training session. A lesson plan for each session contains the following: time required, concepts, instructional objectives, background, materials list, vocabulary, procedures, events, and evaluation. Each lesson plan presents information appropriate for the identified professional competencies, which are found in the introduction to the guide. Handouts and transparencies required for the session are included. Each session takes approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. The minimum time between instructional sessions should be no less than a week. The eight sessions focus on these competencies: (1) explaining CBVE; (2) organizing content for a CBVE program; (3) organizing classroom/laboratory instruction for CBVE; (4) developing written and performance evaluation instruments; (5) using student competency profiles; (6) identifying learning styles; (7) identifying teaching strategies; and (8) guiding students through a CBVE program. A resource list is provided. (YLB)
