The Comprehensive Employment and Training Act: A Guide for Educators.
Franklin, Paul L.
A description of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) precedes an examination of the CETA network. The three fold purpose of CETA is (1) to establish a flexible and decentralized system of federal, state, and local programs; (2) provide job-training and employment opportunities for the economically disadvantaged who are unemployed, underemployed, or attending secondary school; and (3) assure that training and other services will lead to maximum employment opportunities and enhance self-sufficiency. Further explanation of the network includes a description of the prime sponsors of CETA, with emphasis on the state. A model for CETA implementation is included. The Department of Labor's role is related to CETA including a summary of federal requirements for program evaluation and reporting. A description of Title III and its administration follows. Special attention is given to Youth Employment and Demonstration Programs as one of the more successful CETA activities. Suggestions for obtaining funding conclude this section. The second section is a collection of summaries of program ideas. The third section suggests resources for learning more about CETA and contact points within the network. A chart illustrating employment and training administration organization follows. A description of CETA, a list of contacts and prime sponsors, and further resource materials are appended. (F)
