Two-Year Youth Training Schemes: An Evaluation of LEA Modular Programmes. No. 5.
Further Education Unit, London (England).
This bulletin looks in more detail at the attempt of several local education agencies in Great Britain to deliver a Youth Training Scheme (YTS) program based on modular training. The paper covers in detail effective program review, an integral part of the training program. Topics discussed include training programs (on- and off-the-job opportunities and trainee reviews); guidance and support; assessment and review; progression; effective program review; Mainframe response (review processes conducted by the Bedfordshire Youth Training Group, the Haringey processes conducted by the Bedfordshire Youth Training Group, the Haringey Education Service Training Agency, and Sheffield Hallmark); implementation issues; and commentary. For each of these topics, explanations are given of the ideal way in which evaluation should be pursued, and examples of the actual ways in which they are being carried out are included. The report concludes with commentary that a wide variation was found in both practice and effectiveness of program review procedures; continued improvement in the process is recommended. (KC)
