This publication reports the activities of an institute for in-service training of professional persons responsible for vocational-technical education in eastern metrololitan areas. Three related problem areas were seen as reasons for the development and focus of this institute. These included: (1) lack of guidance counselor involvement in the placement of vocationally oriented students; (2) lack of counselor interest and expertise in working with the hard-core unemployed in a school setting; and (3) the need to develop new and innovative models for in-service training of counselors in both of the above areas. The objectives of the institute were to acquaint guidance personnel with: (1) the requirements of entry level jobs; (2) the great variety of job skills provided by vocational programs; (3) the necessity for being conversant with the real needs of modern industry, business and agriculture; and (4) the need to build in youth a respect for jobs not requiring a college education. The institute participants were provided with the opportunity to: (1) hear experts in the fields of placement; (2) visit the Technical High School in Syracuse, New York, to talk with students, teachers and administrators; and (3) spend time in workshops devoted to discussing vocational counseling models.
