School-to-Work Apprenticeship. Project Manual 1993-1995.
Lee Coll., Baytown, TX.
With 1993-94 and 1994-95 Perkins tech prep funds, Lee College, in cooperation with a consortium and local schools, planned, developed, and validated a school-to-work apprenticeship model for tech prep programs. The other educational partners were the Gulf Coast Tech Prep Consortium and nine high schools in eight area school districts. The School-to-Work Apprenticeship Group, the governing body of the project that replaced the initial advisory committee, worked closely with the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training to develop a workable system to secure validation. For the second year, one teacher from each partnership school worked with local business and industry to develop apprenticeship opportunities. The Goose Creek school district implemented a law enforcement program for the 1994-95 school year. Teacher/instructor development activities included worksite tours, curriculum writing workshops, and summer internships for high school and college instructors. DACUMs (Developing a Curriculum process) were completed in law enforcement, process operator, and secretary. The law enforcement curriculum was implemented, evaluated, and revised. Skill competencies were developed and verified for 10 additional occupations. (The 27-page report is accompanied by these appendixes: 19-item bibliography; apprenticeship standards; outline and materials for inservice training; recruitment brochure; competency lists/profiles rating forms; curriculum; evaluation forms; law enforcement tech prep packet; and competency profiles.)
