People Working Together. Handbook on Work Education Councils.
This handbook provides a practical guide for local communities to use to establish work education councils. It deals both with the role which such a council can play in a community and with the process for setting up a work education council. Following an introduction that discusses the work education council concept and demonstration project, the handbook is divided into three primary sections. Chapter 1 deals with the functioning of a work education council in a community. It covers possible activities and models of operation, definitions and realities of collaboration, and possible models for influencing youth policy. Chapter 2 provides a descriptive discussion of the process for setting up a work education council based on approaches used successfully in other communities. Chapter 3 contains a summary of problems and pitfalls experienced by existing councils. Attachments include a listing of sources for more information, definitions of activities that a work education council may undertake, listing of work education councils which are members of the National Work-Education Consortium, and list of major source documents used to compile the handbook.
