Job Training for Youth. The Contributions of the United States Employability Development System. Final Report.
Taylor, Robert E., Ed.; And Others
This book, which contains the proceedings of the first in a series of annual Policy Forums on Employability Development conducted by the National Center for Research in Vocational Education, is an examination of the contributions of the key training institutions in the United States to the preparation of young workers for work. Focusing on preparation for jobs that require less than a college education, the book is intended to provide policymakers with information that will enable them to make more informed decisions about this country's employability training system. The book contains reports on the key structures and opportunities for employability development in this country, including public vocational education, the apprenticeship system, job training in the military, and training offered by proprietary schools. Other papers address the social, economic, and educational context within which employability development is provided. Policy implications and recommendations are presented based on the papers and the discussion that surrounded them at the Policy Forum. (KC)
