Awarding Educational Credit for CETA Training: A Plan of Action.
Sullins, W. Robert; And Others
A project was conducted to determine problems or barriers prohibiting awarding credit for Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) training in Virginia. Potential solutions and strategies for their implementation were to be identified. A variety of methods were used to obtain information required to produce a Plan of Action that presents leaders in CETA and educational settings with activities that would result in increased awarding of academic credit for CETA training. These included a literature review, national survey to identify institutions that had in place implementation strategies for awarding credit for CETA training, a statewide workshop involving CETA and educational leaders, and site visits involving CETA training activities at secondary and postsecondary levels. Problems/issues with both indirect and direct impact were identified and solutions suggested. Those that appeared to have greatest impact were organized into these categories: (l) authority and curriculum, (2) funding, (3) administration, and (4) attitudes and communications. A plan of action incorporated recommendations both for state level actions for attacking the most generalized problems, developing guidelines, and providing a clearinghouse for information about successes in the field and local actions for colleges, schools, and CETA agencies to work on specific problems and implement procedures for immediate results in local settings.
