Occupation Education

File: IGAD

Career Education

The board believes that the schools should provide education that is pertinent to the practical aspects of life and that prepares students to make the transition from the school setting to the world of work. The board therefore supports the inclusion of career education in the basic curriculum.

Career education is a program that allows students to gain career awareness and to explore career opportunities in fields in order to gain a broad base on which to make a decision about their life's work. Career education shall be included at all levels. At the secondary level, it shall incorporate career exploration, career guidance, and vocational training opportunities, with the latter designed to equip students to enter post-secondary training for occupational areas and/or enter specific occupations directly out of high school.

Vocational Education

Vocational education shall be geared to technological and economic conditions and changes, and, as a core component of comprehensive education, shall share with other aspects of the high school curriculum the purpose of development of character and attitudes as well as skills. Guidance and counseling services shall be provided each vocational student throughout the program and when the time comes for placement in his/her chosen career.

To meet the vocational training needs of regular high school students, adults, post-graduates, and others identified by their needs, the district shall provide: (1) industrial education courses; (2) vocational programs in agriculture, business, trades, and other areas--which may include on-the-job training; and (3) apprenticeship training programs.

The vocational education program shall be administered by the vocational director.
