Systematizing the Delivery of Local Employment and Training Services. The Job Center Technical Assistance Guide.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Industry, Labor and Human Relations, Madison.
This technical assistance guide was developed to consolidate a statewide understanding of the effort to systematize the delivery of employment and training programs through the local formation of job centers in Wisconsin, and to provide a compilation, drawn from 20 local models, that explains how the programs are delivered. The guide is organized in seven parts. Part 1 presents a background and overview of the job centers programs. Part 2 identifies common ground of the programs and provides a model for joint planning structures. In part 3, instructions are given for inventorying existing programs and who is being served; a flowchart model is suggested. Part 4 suggests four actions to take in order to unify common functions (intake, assessment, case management, and employer services, with models profiled for each action. Part 5 contains an example of a local job center operation; part 6 explores three facets of job center operation--joint management, outreach and marketing, and other functions. The final section is a short summary of the job center program in Wisconsin. Three appendixes provide the following: (1) an outline of a job center overview for presentation; (2) a service site inventory tool; and (3) a Wisconsin Job Centers Service Location Directory. (KC)
