Exemplary Career Guidance and Counseling Programs for the Nation's Diverse Student Population: A Preliminary Framework.
Office of Special Populations' Brief, v5 n4 May 1994
The National Center for Research in Vocational Education has developed a framework for identifying exemplary career guidance and counseling programs. The framework, which is to be tested at selected pilot sites during 1994, is designed for use in evaluating secondary- and postsecondary-level guidance and counseling programs targeting one or more of the following populations: educationally or economically disadvantaged individuals, disabled individuals, students with limited English proficiency, participants in programs designed to eliminate sex bias, and persons in correctional institutions. The proposed framework consists of the following clusters of program components: (1) institutional support, leadership, and program evaluation (facilities, financial support, guidance personnel qualifications, professional development, program evaluation, and follow-up of program completers and noncompleters); (2) career guidance and counseling program plan (assisting students/clients in self-assessment, educational/occupational exploration, and lifelong career planning; addressing needs of diverse student populations; program support services; and career information delivery systems); and (3) collaboration, articulation, and communication (family/parental, faculty/staff, and student involvement; agency collaboration; and collaboration with business).
