This report on training under Title 1 of the Manpower Development and Training Act of 1962 reviews accomplishments and problems of Fiscal Year 1967-68, traces program changes since the inception of the Act, discusses the potential impact of the amendments of October, 1968, and recommends additional resources, stronger coordination of programs and services, more support of auxiliary services, and more funds for program evaluation. Youth projects, basic education, counseling, and other types of institutional programs and servidces are outlined, together with provisions for staff recruitment and training, patterns of operation in skill centers, and trainee characteristics. Coupled training projects (on the job training with collateral classroom or on site training), cooperative occupational training, and other types of national programs are noted. Also covered are prisoner education, self-help for monority groups, training for returning servicemen, and other innovations, experiments, and special programs, followed by such evaluation techniques as placement data and field reviews. The document includes 55 charts and tables and numerous photos. (ly)
