Report of the Committee on Administration of Training Programs.
Committee on Administration of Training Programs, Washington, DC.
The Committee studied the administration of training under federal programs including Manpower Development and Training, Economic Opportunity, Adult Basic Education, Vocational Education, Work-Study Program, Social Security, Vocational Rehabilitation, and National Apprenticeship Training Acts, as well as selected administratively established programs including Five Cities Test Project, Concentrated Employment Programs, and Operation SER. The study extended from April 1967 to March 1968. It was concluded that some waste, duplication, and inefficiency existed in the nearly 30 separate federally supported job training programs but that these failures rarely vitiated the usefulness of the programs. Recommendations include: (1) formulation and codification of national manpower policy, (2) provision for training of individuals receiving welfare benefits without penalization, (3) expansion of apprenticeship and efforts to assist the flow of qualified minority group applicants, (4) assurance that training prepares for entry into jobs with opportunity for advancemen t and for adequate income, (5) establishment of residential vocational education centers, (6) more adequate funding and arrangement to permit time for programing operations, (7) integration of training activities with the Department of Labor.
