New Approaches to CETA Training: An Overview of the Title III National Program for Selected Population Segments. R & D Monograph 69.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Office of Policy, Evaluation and Research.
An overview of the National Program for Selected Population Segments (NPSPS), a group of eighty-two projects funded during fiscal year 1977 by the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act, Title III, is presented in this report. Chapter I provides an introduction to NPSPS. Chapter II reviews the administrative models used by the eighty-two projects and examines a common theme among them (affiliating with other service groups to maximize the impact of the project). The role of advisory councils is also examined. Chapter III provides a summary of project activities (programs for youth, older workers, handicapped workers, ex-offenders, women, rural workers, and other segments). Chapter IV contains the results of a survey designed to provide a perspective of NPSPS participants (325 Title III NPSPS participants and 170 Title I participants.) Finally, Chapter V presents and discusses the results of a follow-up study of the eighty-two projects after their funding year was over to learn what level of accomplishment the projects had achieved and whether they had been refunded through local monies for the following year. The appendices include an historical perspective of NPSPS programming, a summary of project types, project summaries, and information of projects focussing on women, handicapped, youth, ex-offenders, rural, older workers, and others.
