Supporting YTS. Guidance for Colleges and Others Involved in the MSC Youth Training Scheme.
Further Education Unit, London (England).
Designed for use as a manual, this document is intended to give guidance to the educational system on how it may assist in the implementation of the Manpower Services Commission (MSC) Youth Training Scheme (YTS), a program for vocational preparation. An introduction that explains the background of YTS is followed by eight sections that relate to each of the eight YTS design elements: (1) induction, (2) assessment, (3) planned work experience, (4) occupationally based training, (5) off-the-job training/education, (6) core areas, (7) guidance and support, and (8) record and review of progress and achievement. Each section refers to appropriate MSC criteria and then goes on to describe how these relate to the Further Education Unit and other educational perspectives. Other sections deal with staff development and evaluation. Appendixes, amounting to one-half of the document, include a common core of skills for vocational preparation, a chart of occupational training families, guidance for evaluation of YTS programs, a sample work learning guide and instructional diagram, and descriptions of four examples of YTS.
