What is the current status of vocational and technical education programs? What are the current and projected sources of employment in various communities? How do these two questions influence each other? In order to keep up with the labor demands of an increasingly complex and technologically-oriented workplace, vocational and technical schools need to keep their programs on the cutting edge of contemporary work environments.
This book offers useful information about how to plan, develop, implement, and succeed in vocational and technical programs. The twelve chapters take the reader through these programs from start to finish. Also included are numerous illustrations, forms, and descriptions of how to successfully work through the development process. Each chapter includes a set of references that assist in gathering additional related information.
