Summary

This short paper outlines the basic theoretical approach which the Information System for Vocational Decisions (ISVD) developers are using to solve the problem of how people learn about careers, i.e. the cognitive aspects of occupational guidance. The emphasis is on the vocational developmental process, the gradual acquisition of knowledge about the world of work, of knowledge about the student's own vocational potential, and the increasingly clear understanding of how this potential is fulfilled through school and work. The vocational learning sequence is outlined including such elements as: (1) learning and vocational readiness; (2) the learning situation; (3) vocational cues; and (4) symbolization in the vocational learning process. In essence, the author sees vocational development as a learning process, and fits the vocational counselor's role within the broader role of teacher. He must understand learning and how to facilitate it. (TL)
