A Cooperative Vocational Education Teacher-Coordinator's Guide to Apprentice Training.
Peacock, Patricia, Ed.; Boccippio, Sally, Comp.
This guide is designed to help cooperative vocational education teachers-coordinators in New Jersey to understand the apprentice training opportunities open to their students. Covered first are the history of apprenticeship and an overview of apprenticeship today. Next, strategies are presented for linking apprentice training to cooperative vocational education. Outlined next are the following steps in assisting students with apprenticeship registration: identifying potential candidates, matching students and programs, reinforcing the apprenticeship option, determining commitment to apprenticeship, initiating a formal apprenticeship registration agreement, and expediting the processing of an apprenticeship agreement. The final chapter of the guide deals with various individuals and agencies to assist apprentices, including high school guidance counselors, apprentice coordinator offices, the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training (BAT), the Division of Vocational Education, the New Jersey Job Service, local labor unions and trade associations, and publications. Appended to the guide are a student profile, a list of occupations recognized as apprenticeable by the BAT, certificates of approval for apprentice training and completion of apprenticeship, and an apprentice registration card.
