    Jobs Outlook

  • Must align with the job requirements at worksites in order to be effective

    Post-Secondary Adult Vocational (PSAV) curriculum frameworks are aligned to the 16 recommended Career Clusters defined by the U.S. Department of Education

    Career clusters enable States to establish linkages among State educational agencies, businesses, and other stake holders

    Technical Training

  • The CTT-PSAV program is designed on this model and is now part of the Transportation, Distribution and Logistics Career Cluster for the State of Florida

    This method of instruction was chosen over others to allow the CTT-PSAV to incorporate instructional strategies and methods that improve students' personal qualities and higher-order thinking skills in addition to their technical expertise

    Curriculum frameworks are designed to prepare students for a successful transition from high school to post-secondary education, employment in a career area, or both

    Technical Training

  • SCANS Competencies

    Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS)

    Competency strategies must include

    Identify and demonstrate work habits of successful employees

    Quality of work

    Work hours and schedule

    Actions, initiative, teamwork, dependability, and responsible

    decision making

    Self-control, responses to criticism, and relationships with

    customers and supervisors

    Time management, cost effectiveness

    Personal hygiene, health habits, and professional appearance

    Driving records, drug-free workplace, and industry policies
