Summary

The New Jersey Vocational Needs Assessment Project was designed to determine the needs of industry and business for those areas where public vocational education serves as the primary training agency. Information was obtained from school questionnaires and employer questionnaires and interviews. References to six critical issues were most frequently expressed: (1) competencies for employment need to be identified; (2) minimum standards need to be established and used as a base for "credentialing" programs in vocational education; (3) fiscal support of programs should be directly tied to accountability; (4) more extensive involvement of business and industry in the planning and delivery of educational programs would be beneficial to all parties; (5) vocational education services should be marketed more extensively; and (6) cultural diversity must be addressed. Responses regarding the top 15 items of concern are given in percentages on a chart and a bar graph. (The document includes summaries of 10 national reports from government agencies, research institutes, and private organizations. A bibliography of 14 New Jersey references and 28 national references is included.) (CML)
