Report on Employer-Based Training, 1983-84.
Cronin, Doug; Parkison, Teresa
California's Employer-Based Training (EBT) Program focuses on preparing individuals for the new technologies of the future and responding to the real and current skills training needs of business and industry. The three major program components are: new programs in high and emerging technologies; private sector support for worksite-based training; and retraining of displaced workers. This report evaluates the 1983-84 activities of the EBT Program, including comparative information on 1982-83 operations. Following an executive summary and recommendations for continued program funding, a description of the EBT Program is presented, including an enumeration of program goals, criteria, and components. After a section discussing state and local resources available for EBT, aspects of program operation are described, including planning, coordination, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation. Next, the results of the second-year program review are presented in the areas of course activities, referral process, instruction, educational support services, facilities and equipment, ethnic and gender participation, training completion and employment rates, operational problems identified, and program impact. Finally, the achievement of the 1983-84 EBT objectives is assessed. Attachments include data on funding and college programs. (HB)
