It consists of eight sections. Section 1 presents an overview of the purpose and organization of the guide as well as an introductory discussion of vocational education and the older population. Section 2, which is devoted to planning, covers policy development, needs assessment, goals and objectives determination, strategy identification, and resource procurement. Topics relating to coordination of service delivery examined in section 3 are agency identification, determination of incentives/barriers to coordination, selection of coordinative arrangements, and shared working relationships. Sections 4 and 5 outline development of outreach and recruitment and supportive services. The older adult as learner, facilitative instructional strategies, and instructional options are described in section 6. Section 7, which is devoted to employment services, contains discussions of placement, follow-up, and career development services. Involving older persons as volunteers, planning the volunteer program, and operating a senior volunteer program are examined in chapter 8. (MN)
