Education and Training; Learning for Jobs, 6th Annual Report of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare to the Congress on Training Activities under the Manpower Development and Training Act.
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Washington, DC.
This report, required by section 233 of the Manpower Development and Training Act, opens with the chapter, "Adapting to Economic Change," which comments on major program changes during 1967, all of which relate to increasing the proportion of hard-core unemployed in the program. The chapters, "The Range of Training," and "The Means of Training," discuss the variety of skills taught, educational offerings, supportive services, personnel developments, teaching methods and materials, and equipment and facilities for manpower training. "National Programs and Services" reviews programs for Redevelopment Area Residents and the increasing proportion of training being conducted under national contracts with employer, trade, or nonprofit groups. The manpower program's contribution to development of improved training methods and the institutional training aspects of experimental and demonstration projects are considered in "Innovations and Experiments." The final chapter is "Evaluating Training." Six recommendations concern (1) resources for effective training of the hard-core disadvantaged, (2) more stable funding, (3) improved staff resources, (4) placement services, (5) medical aid, and (6) extending the National Manpower Advisory Committee's functions. Statistical tables, the "Report of the Advisory Council on Vocational Education," and a list of national contractors are in the appendixes. (ET)
