Approaches to Employment Related Training for Adults Who Are Limited-English Proficient (ERTA-LEP).
Kremer, Nick, Ed.; And Others
This guide identifies four distinct approaches to employment-related training for limited-English proficient (LEP) adults. All of the approaches assume an intensive language instruction component, Vocational English as a Second Language. Following an introduction is a section that deals, in a general sense, with some key concerns shared by all four approaches: finances, administrative support, staff development, a competency-based philosophy, support services, and cross-cultural training. Each of the next four sections focuses on one approach, each of which is idenfified by its setting: the English-as-a-second-language approach, the vocational program approach, the work experience approach, and the workplace approach. An implementation checklist appears first in each section. Each of the approaches is divided into four parts: understanding the approach (a definition and description), identifying the goals (an explanation of the approach's major aims), sizing it up (evaluative comments about advantages, uniqueness, or particular suitability of the approach), and making it or breaking it (suggestions for making the program work). Other contents include a glossary, an appendix with sample forms and supplementary materials, and a bibliography. (YLB)
