Foothill-De Anza Community Coll. District, Cupertino, CA. Occupational Training Inst.
Utilizing data from comprehensive surveys of vocational education students' needs and on-site investigations, this handbook was developed to provide a systematic approach to link student services, job placement, and vocational education for special population students in the California Community Colleges (CCC). The first section describes the development of the handbook and the general goals of the project, while the second section describes the following exemplary career programs at CCC institutions: the Avionics Systems Maintenance Technician Program at College of San Mateo; the Fire-Fighter Agility Test Qualification Program at Crafton Hills College; and the Health Technologies Electroencephalographic Technologists Program at De Anza College. This section also provides information on choosing a career and includes a list of labor market resources. Next, the handbook presents a facilitator's guide for conducting a 12- to 24-hour Employment Workshop, including activity materials, sample job applications, and resume outlines. Then, a five-chapter employment handbook for students is presented, with detailed information on finding available jobs, contacting employers, interviewing, and writing a resume. The next section provides descriptions of two exemplary student services efforts at CCC institutions: the English as a Second Language/Amnesty Education program at Long Beach City College, and the New Horizons Project for Single Parent/Displaced Homemakers at Napa Valley College. In addition, this section describes the different student services most commonly found in CCC institutions. The final section provides contact people and addresses for various health, legal, community, and housing services located in Santa Clara County, as well as a list of special hotline numbers. (PAA)
