Project CREATE Final Report. Cooperative Resources To Enhance Access to Technology Education.
Hampden County Employment and Training Consortium, Springfield, MA.
These materials have been developed by Project CREATE (Cooperative Resources to Enhance Access to Jobs through Technical Education), a demonstration program designed to develop a network, specific activities, and resources that would provide education and support services to a wide audience. A 13-page final report describes the hands-on training in metalworking, automotive repair, printing and graphics, and computerized numerical control (CNC); resource, curriculum, and staff development; skills assessment survey; and conference activities. These training materials were provided in the document: training course outlines for automotive, machining, and printing/graphic arts; evaluation forms and data tables; and automotive pretests, posttests, chapter tests, and answer keys in English and Spanish. These resources follow: Coordinated Training Agreements in metalworking and printing; skills survey for printing, automotive, and machining trades in English/Spanish; and copies of the newsletter, ACCESS. The next section contains the report of the conference, "Opening Doors in the Nineties: Workers, Skills, and Diversity," which brought together over 125 representatives from education, employment and training, government, community-based organizations, labor, and industry. Included in the document is an independent evaluation that sees the value of the project as a model for a community-based institution that coordinates and provides leadership in the area of vocational training. A curriculum for CNC repair is also provided. (YLB)
