CONTINUING EMPLOYMENT THROUGH TRAINING.
PEARCE, FRANK C.
THE EFFECTIVENESS OF MODESTO JUNIOR COLLEGE'S MULTIOCCUPATIONAL TRAINING PROJECT AT NEW HOPE SCHOOL WAS EVALUATED ON THE BASIS OF SUBSEQUENT EMPLOYMENT OF TRAINEES. DATA ON THE CURRENT EMPLOYMENT STATUSES OF TRAINEES AND DROPOUTS, REASONS FOR BEING OUT OF THE LABOR FORCE, ANTICIPATED EMPLOYMENT, EMPLOYMENT PATTERNS AND EARNING POWER OF EMPLOYED TRAINEES, SOURCES OF PRESENT JOBS, REFERRAL PATTERNS, AND ASSESSMENTS OF THE VALUE OF TRAINING WERE OBTAINED WITH A POST-TRAINING REPORT, GENERALLY IN CONJUCTION WITH INTERVIEWS, 3, 6, AND 12 MONTHS AFTER TRAINING. NEW HOPE PROJECT EMPLOYMENT RATES FOR ANY GIVEN WEEK RAN BETWEEN 55 AND 60 PERCENT. THE ACTUAL UNEMPLOYMENT RATE FOR THE PROJECT WAS BETWEEN 10 AND 15 PERCENT. EIGHT PERCENT OF THE TRAINEES WERE OUT OF THE LABOR FORCE. TRAINEES TENDED TO ENTER TRAINING-RELATED JOBS, AND THOSE WHO DID SO OVERWHELMINGLY FOUND THEIR TRAINING OF VALUE. JOB PLACEMENT WAS DONE MORE SUCCESSFULLY BY THE TRAINING PROJECT THAN BY EMPLOYMENT SERVICES. THE AVERAGE EARNING POWER WAS LISTED AS $1.82 PER HOUR AND COMPARED FAVORABLY WITH THE EARNING POWER OF OTHERS IN THE SUBCULTURE. PREVOCATIONAL TRAINING OR LACK THEREOF APPEARED TO HAVE LITTLE BEARING ON SUBSEQUENT EMPLOYMENT. A COMPREHENSIVE FOLLOWUP STUDY OF TRAINEES AND EVALUATIVE STUDIES OF TRAINING PROGRAMS, TRAINING NEEDS, PARTICIPANT CHARACTERISTICS, AND REASONS FOR NONPARTICIPATION WERE RECOMMENDED. THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES 13 TABLES. (LY)
