School-to-College-to-Career Transition Model Project.
Stanley, Patricia
A project was conducted to expand college-to-work transition options available to vocational students at Orange Coast College (OCC) and to develop a comprehensive multioption model for community college-to-work transitions. The project advisory committee began working to link tech prep to the project's goals and to establish ties with Orange County's Vital Link project, which is part of a national pilot project focusing on enhancing high school students' employability skills. The following college-to-career options were developed for OCC students: worksite-based internships, a comprehensive career development program as defined in the National Career Development Guidelines, and skill guarantees for program graduates. The comprehensive multioption model was developed and disseminated to other colleges through a brochure, conference presentations, and other media channels. (Appendixes contain the following: written agreements, list of Vital Link participants, draft employability transcript, strategies for internship opportunities for special populations, skills guarantee, sample worksite placement letter, internship academy description, and career-to-college advisory committee members and option team members. Also included is the model for preparing community colleges to provide college-to-career transition program/services.) (MN)
