Private Sector Training of the Economically Disadvantaged: Key Elements of Success.
Keppler, Mark; Juelich, Mike
This study analyzes private sector training programs that benefit economically disadvantaged (CETA-eligible) persons. Information on ten private sector training programs in seven states (Iowa, Florida, Maryland, California, Kansas, Mississippi, and New York) collected from a mailed eleven-page questionnaire, a follow-up telephone interview, and pertinent project documents is provided. The ten case studies are presented alphabetically. Each contains a brief outline including program title, name of operating organization, contact persons, prime sponsor data, program identifiers, budget data, organizational data and background information, primary information (why and how), unique features of the program, major goals and objectives, program description, negative aspects of the program, positive aspects of the program, and model implementation hints. Focus is on the feasibility of replication, the unique aspects of the program, and improvements that increased the program's success. Fourteen factors that determined the public sector's success in encouraging private sector participation in employment and training efforts and eight steps by which the private sector component can increase the likelihood of successful implementation of employment and training programs are identified. Implications for employment and training personnel are outlined, and suggestions for increased private sector involvement are provided. (MN)
