Coordination of CETA and Vocational Education. Technical Assistance Guide.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
Coordination between Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) and vocational education systems can achieve stronger job training and employment opportunities for CETA clients. Through coordination, CETA and vocational education agencies can eliminate duplication of effort in training and other service activities, can augment each other's strengths through pooling resources, and can realize greater impetus and innovation in their programs and policies. This guide is intended to encourage such linkages and to provide CETA and vocational education administrators with practical management tips for joint planning and implementation of programs. The first chapter introduces the concept of educational linkages and explains why they are beneficial to CETA and vocational education. In chapter 2, an outline of the 1978 CETA legislation as it relates to coordination with vocational education is presented, along with a summary of the coordination references contained in the 1976 vocational education legislation. Chapter 3 contains an overview of the CETA and vocational education systems, including a discussion of barriers to effective partnership. The fourth chapter discusses planning for coordination, including not only the legislative mandate but also the steps that lead to program initiation and development. Chapter 5 presents information about the formal agreement for linkages--its purpose, function, and content. The final chapter examines various aspects of coordination once the linkage arrangement has been established, and offers suggestions for dealing with further coordination problems that may arise.
