Evaluation of Manpower Development and Training Skills Centers. Final Report.
Olympus Research Corp., Salt Lake City, UT.
Skills centers represent a fairly new and different component of national manpower policy. The 70 Manpower Development and Training Act (MDTA) Skills Centers are designed to provide comprehensive manpower services for the disadvantaged, including training, basic education, communication skills, counseling, placement, and follow-up. Based on visits to 19 Skills Centers in 16 states, this report is an evaluation of the concept, rather than the effectiveness of individual centers. Conceptual strengths and weaknesses are described, and recommendations are made to improve future operations of the centers. (BH)
