Instructor training and skill development

Job Corps instructors are industry professionals and bring years of experience and contacts within their chosen occupational fields.  To enhance instructor flexibility and effectiveness, technical assistance and training is provided to address the unique needs of LEP and Spanish speaking learners.  Instructors learn how to identify individual learner information processing and learning styles, as well as their personal teaching style.  The training enhances student outcomes and significantly lowers dropout rates of Hispanic and LEP youth.  This intensive training includes unique and innovative teaching strategies from Brain-Based Learning (Eric Jenson), Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), Multiple Intelligences as well as adult learning strategies.  Training and support to the Job Corps instructors increases student retention as well as enhances instructor skill and job satisfaction.   

Focus on matching worker skills and business demands. 

By increasing instructor competence in “reading” each student’s individual style, instructors have better tools to be able to direct students into appropriate vocational and occupational areas.  Using the Theory of Multiple Intelligence (TMI) as a foundation for assessing individual talents, skills and intelligences, Job Corps is better able to match worker skills and business demands.  TMI provides a format to teach instructors both vocational job and task matching, as well as instructional strategies for individual learning styles.

Curriculum review and development. 

With the input of the BAC/IAC, curriculum will be translated and adapted to assure that all educational and intellectual levels are accommodated.  This may include but not limited to enhancing classroom curriculum materials and study aids to include bi-lingual visual, auditory, and kinesthetic instructional strategies and teaching materials.  By enhancing instructional materials and methods, instructors will connect with far more learners by taking into account the unique learning style of each student.  The enhanced curriculum will simultaneously provide language and occupational skills training.
