A Guide to PAVE Facilitator Training.
Franklin, Laura; Landry, Laura
This guide to Promoting Access to Vocational Education (PAVE) Facilitator Training provides an overview of an 18-month training program for new facilitators working to improve services for vocational students with limited English proficiency (LEP) on their campuses. The guide covers all major topics addressed in facilitator training sessions. Part 1 introduces PAVE's philosophy and goals, and examines the facilitator's role within the large context of the project. Part 2 describes the essential components of a successful LEP vocational program through a survey of model programs, with emphases on the Bilingual Vocational Training format, widely viewed as the ideal program for meeting the needs of LEP vocational students. Part 3 examines the impact of cultural issues on program planning and allows facilitators to assess their own cultural sensitivity. Part 4 surveys curricular elements of a successful LEP vocational program that incorporates both language and vocational training and is grounded in cooperative learning strategies and an awareness of workplace realities. In part 5, facilitators learn when, why, and how to evaluate a program and how to create an evaluation instrument. Part 6 examines the facilitator's role as an agent of change, using theories of change management developed for business and industry. Finally, a comprehensive resources list guides readers to sources of funding, materials, texts, and additional information such as on-line networks. (KP)
