Workplace Literacy Partnerships Program. Final Performance Report.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Adult Education.
The New Jersey Workplace Literacy Partnerships Program was conducted from February 1989 to May 1990. The project was funded by the New Jersey Department of Education, with a 30-percent cash match from District 65 of the United Auto Workers, the Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association, and the New Jersey Thoroughbred Horsemen's Benevolent Association. The project accomplished its original goals. In addition, each of the partners was satisfied with the program and willing to continue. Some of the accomplishments of the program were the following: (1) the project implemented six workplace education assistance centers that provide adult basic education and English-as-a-Second-Language instruction; (2) 1,514 employees from 34 companies were served; (3) customized workplace literacy programs were provided to more than 1,000 employees of specially targeted businesses where literacy needs were identified as barriers to productivity; and (4) a statewide process for planning and developing new workplace literacy programs was established. (Checklists and curriculum used in the project and statistical tables are included as appendixes to this report.) (KC)
