INDIVSTU 4159/5159 Implementation of Work-Based Learning Programs

Designed to fulfill the requirement of work-based learning coordinator techniques for MOC licensure in Iowa (required under approved career and technical education programs) and for secondary endorsements in special education. Students learn the basics of planning, organizing, and implementing work-based learning to address two goal areas: specific occupational skill development and standard work-behavior development. Primary areas of study include how to implement training plans and agreements; develop liaison relationships with the community; evaluate student performance; provide relevant classroom instruction; involve parents and guardians; and counsel students for job application, work performance and transition into work/post-secondary training. Federal and state employment laws and other primary resources to assist in the coordination process will be identified and utilized in developing a local plan for implementing work-based learning.
