Job Training Partnership Act. Implications for Educators.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
Information is provided for educators concerning the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), a federal training-for-employment act replacing the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act. The bill is reviewed, and its major provisions and titles are listed. Common terms of the JTPA are provided. Discussion follows of the governance structure at the state level and at the local level, which has three primary components: the service delivery area, the private industry council, and the job training plan. Attention is then given to federal and state funding. Other topics covered are performance standards for youth and adult programs and eligibility requirements. An estimated timetable for JTPA is included. A question and answer section highlights the JTPA issues of major importance to the educational community. The educational School-to-Employment Program (STEP) that meets the intent of JTPA is then described. Appendixes, making up almost two-thirds of the publication, contain overviews of 17 current programs congruent with the goals of JTPA. Information provided in each description includes program purpose, program characteristics, the relationship to JTPA legislation, JTPA performance standards that may be met by the program, and the address of a source for additional information.
