Practices for Providing Follow-through Services to Employment and Training Clients. Bridges to Employment, Book Three. Research and Development Series No. 224.
King-Fitch, Catherine C.
This manual provides a set of guidelines and suggested practices for implementing a follow-through services component in conjunction with an employment and training program. It is based in part on a 1980 study conducted by the National Center for Research in Vocational Education in which Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) practitioners were interviewed regarding follow-through services that would continue the job of preparing clients for stable employment and self-sufficiency. That study revealed a lack of such services and an expressed need for guidelines for establishing such a program. While the original study focused on CETA, this manual is intended for any employment and training program designed to assist disadvantaged clients. Guidelines are provided for planning a follow-through program to meet local needs, conducting a client needs assessment, delivering services to clients, conducting program evaluation, and staffing a follow-through program. Suggested practices are offered in four major program areas: job search assistance, job adjustment counseling, career planning and training assistance, and referral to support services. (KC)
