The New Business Look in Employment and Training Programs. The Private Sector Initiative Program (PSIP). Second Edition.
Intended to inform local communities (especially the business sector) of ways to join government-sponsored employment and training programs with the private employment market, this handbook provides broad guidelines for use in the establishment and operation of the Private Industry Council (PIC). (The PIC is the primary vehicle created by Title VII of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act--CETA--for making the nation's employment and training policy more responsive to the labor needs of private employers and for helping the unemployed worker more effectively.) The main parts of CETA and its private sector initiatives are outlined. Provided in a section on Private Industry Councils is an overview of the PIC as well as information on creating a PIC, multi-jurisdictional PICs, PIC membership, structure, composition, staff, role, function, operational by-laws, and sub-committees. Beginning operations, the Title VII plan, developing new programs, and technical assistance are discussed in a final section on PIC operations. Information on the historical background of employment and training programs and the text of Title VII regulations are appended. (MN)
