THE SCOPE, ORGANIZATION, AND PRINCIPLES OF VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL TRAINING IN INDUSTRY (ED.D. THESIS).
STAHL, EDGAR E.
TO DETERMINE THE PATTERNS OF PRE-SERVICE (VESTIBULE) TRAINING, JOB ORIENTATION, ON THE JOB TRAINING, INDENTURED APPRENTICESHIPS, AND AFTER-HOURS TECHNICAL AND GENERAL STUDY IN THE PREPARATION OF WORKERS IN SKILLED, SEMI-SKILLED, AND TECHNICAL OCCUPATIONS OF MANUFACTURING INDUSTRIES, THE LITERATURE ON TRAINING MANAGEMENT WAS EXAMINED. AN INTERVIEW SCHEDULE AND REPORT FORM, BASED ON QUESTIONS EVALUATED BY A JURY OF TRAINING DIRECTORS, MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL, AND GENERAL AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATORS IN THE GREATER LOUISVILLE AREA, WERE USED TO GATHER DATA FROM 119 FIRMS. THE FINDINGS INDICATED THAT INDUSTRY APPRECIATES THE VALUE OF TRAINING PROGRAMS, AND USUALLY PROVIDES IN-PLANT TRAINING FOR SKILLED AND SEMI-SKILLED WORKERS AND SUPERVISORY PERSONNEL, BUT SELDOM FOR THE INDUSTRIAL TECHNICIAN. JOB ORIENTATION, ON THE JOB, AND APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING, INCLUDING THE DEVELOPMENT OF DESIRABLE WORKER ATTITUDES, ARE TYPICAL OF IN-PLANT PROGRAMS. INDUSTRY RELIES HEAVILY UPON THE TRAINING FACILITIES OF OUTSIDE AGENCIES AND ENCOURAGES WORKERS' PARTICIPATION IN AFTER-HOURS TRAINING. WHILE INDUSTRY AND THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS DO NOT CLOSELY COOPERATE IN THE PREPARATION OF INDUSTRIAL WORKERS, THE TRANSITION FROM SCHOOL TO INDUSTRY IS FACILITATED BY THE WORK-STUDY PLAN.
