Preparation for Apprenticeship through CETA. A Report by the Apprenticeship Project. Volume 1.
Tolo, Kenneth, Ed.
An overview of the functions of preapprenticeship programs, this report contains a statement of need, definitions, description of component parts, examination of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) as a resource, and discussion of how to work with CETA. Preapprenticeship programs are defined as those which prepare individuals directly and specifically to compete for apprenticeship positions. Based on a review of the literature and field visits to preapprenticeship programs operating in cities across the country, the study reported here identified three types of preapprenticeship programs: apprenticeship outreach, outreach with skills development, and craft readiness training. Major recommendations deal with need for client orientation, direct involvement of industry, the effective utilization of CETA funding, fuller participation for women and male minorities through work with teachers and counselors, and increased evaluation of programs. Included are a glossary, the survey instruments, and three appendixes which give an overview of the twenty-three programs surveyed. (MEK)
