School-to-Work Apprenticeship. Project Manual 1993-1994.
Lee Coll., Baytown, TX.
With Perkins tech prep funds, Lee College (Baytown, Texas), working with the Gulf Coast Tech Prep Consortium and the Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District, developed a school-to-work apprenticeship model for tech prep programs. An advisory committe provided guidance in identifying targeted apprenticeable jobs, program content, and program sequence. The two targeted occupations were law enforcement and process operator in the petro-chemical industry. Activities such as worksite tours were designed to give teachers/instructors hands-on experiences to enable them to link classroom instruction to the workplace. Two DACUMs (Developing a Curriculum process) were conducted to help identify specific knowledge and skills needed for the targeted occupations. Career awareness activities were conducted to educate students and their parents about the youth apprenticeship program. The project developed occupational programs into full tech prep programs by having signed articulation agreements between Goose Creek school and Lee College, developed 6-year courses of study for students in grades 9-14, and obtained full participation of business and industry in developing the program. (The 18-page report is accompanied by these appendixes: general project information, including articulation agreements; curriculum and internship information, including lesson plans and completed internship evaluations; proposed 1994-95 high school program; and formative evaluation results.)
