OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING FOR TOMORROW'S WORLD OF WORK. NUMBER 6, BUSINESS, LABOR, AND OTHER PRIVATE PROGRAMS.
SCHWEITZER, HARVEY
BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY HAVE A LONG HISTORY OF DEVELOPING AND CONDUCTING TRAINING PROGRAMS. A 1962 U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR SURVEY COVERING 710,662 ESTABLISHMENTS WHICH EMPLOYED FROM FOUR TO OVER 500 EMPLOYEES FOUND THAT ABOUT ONE-FIFTH HAD TRAINING PROGRAMS IN OPERATION. ADVANTAGES OF TRAINING PROGRAMS IN BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY ARE -- (1) THE TRAINING IS SPECIFIC AND JOB ORIENTED, (2) PRIOR VOCATIONAL TRAINING MAY NOT BE REQUIRED, (3) INDIVIDUALS MAY BE ROTATED THROUGH A SERIES OF PROGRAMS TO MATCH THEIR INTERESTS AND CAPABILITIES, (4) EQUIPMENT AND TEACHERS ARE AVAILABLE, AND (5) LEARNING AND EARNING CAN BE COMBINED. DISADVANTAGES ARE -- (1) TRAINING MAY BE TOO SPECIFIC, (2) AVAILABILITY OF TRAINING DEPENDS ON EMPLOYMENT, (3) SMALL FIRMS CANNOT AFFORD EXTENSIVE PROGRAMS, AND (4) SUCH TRAINING IS USUALLY CONCENTRATED IN METROPOLITAN AND INDUSTRIAL CENTERS. OTHER OCCUPATIONAL PROGRAMS INCLUDE APPRENTICE TRAINING, PRIVATE SCHOOL COURSES, HOME STUDY COURSES, AND THE WORK OF PRIVATE PHILANTHROPIC, RELIGIOUS, AND CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS, PARTICULARLY FOR THE HANDICAPPED AND DISADVANTAGED. OTHER DOCUMENTS IN THIS SERIES ARE VT 001 353 - VT 001 357. (EM)
