State Occupational Training Advisory Committee. Report of an Articulation Study.
South Carolina State Council on Vocational and Technical Education, Columbia.
The State Council on Vocational and Technical Education in South Carolina assessed the implementation of coordination and articulation agreements and career guidance in the state between educational institutions. A questionnaire survey was developed and sent to each of the 16 technical colleges, 1 school district, and 1 vocational center in each of the 16 tech prep consortia within the state. The responses were organized by survey groups--technical colleges, school districts, and vocational centers. The comments were summarized, with findings and recommendations for each topic area. Some of the findings and recommendations include the following: (1) career guidance counseling is available at the technical colleges and in the schools, but more uniform guidance practices are recommended; (2) few institutions are using written agreements to promote cooperation and coordination--college presidents were asked to assume responsibility for creating such agreements; and (3) many secondary and postsecondary institutions are working to share resources, but more formalized arrangements are needed.
