Prevocational Training for the Hard-to-Employ--A Systems Approach. Perspectives on Training the Disadvantaged--The Hard-to-Employ. Personnel Services Review Series 2.
Harrison, Don K.
The author, as former administrative head of Detroit Northern Systems Company, describes that company's successful approach to the training of the hard-core unemployed. The systems approach emphasizes the achievement of goals and sub-goals through an interplay of program components which include training lines of 'tool stations,' back-up classes which precede the tool line, the remedial classes which feature reading, arithmetic, and communication; and the Social Skills Seminar which is essentially role-playing. The system utilizes programmed instruction that is highly detailed, has a built-in reward system, and provides personal support and counseling for each trainee. (DB)
