Wider Opportunities for Women, Inc., Washington, DC.
This manual is intended for use at demonstration sites of the Nontraditional Employment Training (NET) project, which is in turn designed to provide Private Industry Councils with a model for implementing the Nontraditional Employment for Women (NEW) Act (Public Law 102-235). Included in the manual are the following: excepts from newspapers and journals, published curricula, and government agency publications; lesson plans; student handouts; and learning activities (including self-evaluation instruments and worksheets). Chapter 1 examines myths and facts about nontraditional occupations for women, and Chapter 2 provides overviews of the NEW Act and NET project. Discussed in chapters 3 through 7 are the following aspects of NET project implementation: recruitment, assessment, prevocational training, sexual harassment, and job development and placement. Chapter 8 contains the following resources: lists of national and state nontraditional employment, training, and education resources and potential sources of funding for nontraditional training efforts; a 121-item bibliography on nontraditional occupations for women; annotated listings of successful Job Training Partnership Act nontraditional employment and training programs and nontraditional occupations training curricula; and information about Wider Opportunities for Women, Inc., and its publications and membership. The chapter on sexual harassment includes a 56-item bibliography. (MN)
